This soft flex beading wire is 21 strand stainless steel/nylon coated. Each spool contains approximately 100 feet.
Soft flex is hypoallergenic, and marine quality, so it can be worn in and out of salt water and fresh water.
The .014 diameter is for use with softer, less abrasive materials, such as fresh water pearls and seed beads. It offers softness and flexibility, yet has the strength of stainless steel. It can pass through a size 14 seed bead twice.
