100% Customer Satisfaction has been our commitment since 1856. It’s who we are. If you aren’t happy with a product or service, we want to know about it. And we’ll make it right. THAT’S THE ORVIS WAY.

Nano Silk 50D12/0 is super strong and available in such a variety of colours and deniers it has endless possibilities and can be used for micro flies to large flies.

It has all the strength you would expect from a premier thread being 10 times stronger than steel of the same diameter. However it is also fine enough for size 16 to 32 flies whilst still retaining strength. Although Nano Silk Ultra 30D 18/0 is already a fine thread, it can be split down further if required so making dubbing much easier!

Nano Silk 50D 12/0 is designed for flies sizes 8 to 16, the ideal for most fly tyers, being stronger than 6/0 polyester thread yet is less than 1/20th of the diameter. As a result it can be used for any fly where you do not want to see your thread.

Because Nano Silk lays perfectly flat you get no thread build up.

  • 12/0 50 denier thread
  • Breaking strain 1,900gm / 4.2lb
  • Perfect on hook sizes 6 to 16
  • Lays perfectly flat with no build up, regardless of how many loops you put on the hook
  • 10 times stronger than steel of the same diameter

Pro Tips:
1 -
Rotate anti-clockwise to untwist and lay perfectly flat. With just 2 or 3 light wraps of Nano Silk over foam you can then tighten and tie in foams or materials that would cut easily.
2 - Use white Nano Silk and simply colour the last 4 inches (100mm) of thread for heads in a visible colour.

Black and White - 100m (approx) per spool.
Coloured silk - 50m (approx) per spool.
