UTC 140 Thread
140 Denier Ultra Thread from Wapsi
All of Ultra Thread’s characteristics were carefully chosen to enhance its tying performance. Here are a few of the thread characteristics that make Ultra Thread ideal for fly tying and 1 of the most popular choices for today’s discerning fly-dresser.
- ties flat
- lightly waxed with a slight twist
- has a small amount of stretch
- builds slowly
- a thread retainer (side washer)
- 100yard spools
140 is excellent for the vast majority of flies, it is the perfect choice for hook size 2-16. Due to its vibrant sheen and excellent colour retention, it is also a good substitute for body floss on smaller flies.
We proudly use it on the majority of our own salmon and trout flies and highly recommend.
