Nano Silk Pro 20D Black is considered the professional level being the finest of the range. 20d is also known as 24/0 – that is really very small indeed! That said this baby of the Nano Silk family has all the strength you would expect from this premier thread. It is 10 times stronger than steel of the same diameter! Nano Silk Pro 20D Black is fine enough for size 20 to 32 flies whilst still retaining its strength. Available in black and white, with 100 metres on each spool, if you dare, you can split this oh so fine thread further if required so dubbing on size 32 flies with split threads is a reality.!
Nano Silk Pro 20D Black is designed for micro flies down to size 32, however do not be fooled, Nano Silk Pro 20D Black is as strong as 8/0 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.
You can tell you are using Nano Silk Pro 20D Black as its on white spools to differentiate it from the other Nano Silks. Please remember to use a ceramic bobbin holder
Because Nano Silk lays perfectly flat you get no thread build up. Indeed check out our Youtube video where we put 100 wraps on a hook and still had no head buildup!

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 color the last 4 inches (100mm) of thread for heads in a visible color
