Hi everyone,

Finally, 8 TYPES, 239 COLORS of our Metallic threads are available at our homepage with following variations. (You'll find actual wrappings of all threads on blank at each thread page)
- VIVID : 78 colors in Size A & C (Single color basic metallic thread) [hitenausa.com]
- STRIPE : 10 colors in Size A [hitenausa.com]
- NOBLE : 17 colors in Size A & B (Hybrid of Metallic and Nylon threads, Rustic look) [hitenausa.com]
- AURORA : 14 colors in Size A & C (Change colors by angle and lighting) [hitenausa.com]
- ZEBRA (Jasper) : 30 colors in Size A [hitenausa.com]
- ZEBRA STRIPE : 7 colors in Size A & 11 colors in Size B (Blend of Zebra and Stripe, multi-tones infused) [hitenausa.com]
- VERSA : 38 colors in Size B (Unique patterns for decorative wrap, butt wrap) [hitenausa.com]
- BRAID : To be released later

We originally scheduled release of our metallic threads Sep last year but delayed a few times to make it the best quality and to its perfection with following features,
- Finest metallic thread with diameter true to its size (our A is true A - it's not B or C labelled A)
- Ultra smooth texture, you'll find the difference immediately once you compare ours to anything you use now
- Due to the super tight twist, it doesn't fray easy and absolutely round to sit perfect flat on blank
- More than 85% of our metallic threads comes with Lifetime UV Color Fastness Guarantee (Check guarantee color list are on our website [hitenausa.com])
- Elongation is tightly controlled to stay within 18+/-3% narrow range so consistent tension is maintained at wrapping (Normal metallic threads stretches anywhere between 10% and 55% with elongation fluctuating even in the same spool and this is one of the reasons for thread breaking during wrapping and undesired result)
- Noble, Aurora, Zebra Stripe and Versa come out truly unique (1303 Pure Silver even contains genuine silver for best presentation)

* Currently, only 100yd spool is available but 1 oz will be stocked in a couple of months
* Size A is not meant for power wrapper. We recommend B or thicker for wrapping with power wrapper

For those who tried our prototype samples in Sep~Nov last year, this final production is much more improved from those samples. We are planning to sell metallic threads at discount at next week's ICRBE along with our Nylon, NCP, Glow, Silk threads and finish epoxy.
