New Note – 9/21/20 – Our importer has new supplies, thank goodness. Not every color, but most, will be back on our shelves by October. The order has already been placed and confirmed.
Stop…. 2/21/20…Until further notice, please pay for all orders containing Tire silks using PayPal (which makes it easy for us to issue refunds as needed; we CANNOT issue refunds promptly if you pay by Credit Card because the bank’s security protocols ensure that your card data is erased the instant the transaction is processed). If you need more than two spools of a color, please email to see if we have enough in stock…we might not even have one or two spools because we must update inventory manually and we’re often a day behind on this process. While we appreciate the large orders we’ve been receiving recently, we cannot fill most of them. The Tire brand silks suddenly went out of stock with our importer, and across the country. We appreciate all the seamstresses who have found our shop and started ordering recently, however we’re in the same position as all your former suppliers. We are very low on inventory because we’re unable to restock most colors.
#50 Silk is good for light-weight rods, but ideal for mid-weight rods. Tire silk has a naturally bright and bold luster combined with smooth finish, plus this size #50 thread is easy to wrap with. Available in 171 solid colors. 109 yards/spool.
Available in size #50 & #30, Tire (formerly Clover/Tire) filament silks offer a vast range of colors to the rodmaker who prefers, with the size #50, a slightly more sturdy thread. Or, reach for size #30, when you need a decidedly heavier thread for the big rods: Spey, salmon, striper, bass, & so forth.
