Tiger Tail – Various Colours


Tiger tail is seven strands of cables twisted and then coated in a Nylon coating, super strong and available in various bold colours tiger tail is perfect for stringing.


Tiger tail wire more commonly known as simply tigertail is a thin wire encased in nylon often used in beaded jewellery, and it is particularly suited to stringing heavy & sharp beads, which have a tendancy to fray other kinds of thread.  For this reason, tiger tail is the thread of choice for gemstones, our tiger tail has seven intertwined wire threads under the nylon coating.  The wire threads are made of stainless steel cable.  


Tiger tail cannot be knotted in order to end a sequence of beads as other kinds of thread can, therefore crimp beads are often used for this purpose instead.  Among the types of wire used for bead stringing tiger tail is the most common.  Tiger tail is easier to use than many other kinds of thread, and it does not require the use of a needle.  Tiger tail has high strength & is extremely difficult to break, but if it is creased or twisted, tiger tail has a tendency to kink & then become brittle in the kinked area.
