    What's deal with spiderwire? Is it easier to work with or makes a less noticeable place in a cape. I was just curious because I hear a lot about it on here

    ShastaDonegan Lets start with ridiculous and move backwards.

    X2 ...and it doesn't stretch back apart. I have it in size 4 to 20, hides beautifully and doesn't snag up ever.

    Fireline here too! Just make sure you tie the starting and ending points very well because single knots don't hold well.

    Thanks for info. Hadn't really thot about fishing line for sewing capes but I'm just getting started doing taxidermy work.something I've always wanted to do
     
  7. You welcome
     
  8. I have recently used it on the last two deer that I did; it does a great job for its size and strength.
     
  9. I like the braided line. You can fray the end and get 3 or 4 smaller threads that are strong as heck, really good for small tight stitches
