      A:

      I haven't used it for that, but it is pretty strong stuff. I used it to tie fletching on a set of traditional English Longbow arrows.

      A:

      I like to use something stronger like sinew , you can tighten it more. This is more useful for wrapping feathers.

      A:

      Hello fellow archer!
      The silk thread will work; however, per strand it only has about 5 ½ lbs of
      strength, so you won’t be able to cinch it too tight (because it will
      break). You are further ahead to use something else that will handle more
      stress per strand.
      Cheers,

      A:

      The short answer is: I don't know. Although silk is remarkably strong stuff, I suspect this thread would be too fine, and you might want something tough and thicker like sinew. But I haven't tried it, so I really don't know. I use silk thread to whip leading and trailing ends of fletching. (See attached photos, if they came through.)
      Good Luck!

      A:

      I wouldn't use it to haft stone points. When I use it to bind fletching,
      glue or varnish is needed to secure it properly - other wise they wear. For
      hafting stone points, perhaps artificial sinew would be a better choice
      (though I haven't tried it). Of course - if you actually shoot with it, the
      sinew will wear as well - I'm not certain how much longevity will be added
      if you finish it with polyurethane.

  • Q:

    What size or diameter is this silk cord?

      A:

      I am having a hard time getting an accurate measurement with the micrometer. It crushes the thread. I know that the nylon serving material is .015 and the silk looks about 1/3 smaller. I would say that it is close to .010.

    The selection just shows yellow - is black out of stock or no longer available?

      A:

      Our pure silk is being discontinued due to supplier issues and I am not sure if it will be coming back. All we have left in stock is the yellow.
