1.6 mm steel wire SWG 16       

5 meters approx


Great for use in wire armature projects, the 16 gauge wire is quite strong and you will need a good pair of pliers to bend this into shape and a good pair of wire snips to cut it.


This is a good mid range wire that is suitable for medium sized projects and can be doubled up for extra strength. You can bend it into shape with your fingers but for tight bends, pliers are best.


I would recommend using a bit of parcel tape or masking tape on the cut ends when using this wire, so you don't scatch your skin.


Available in a range of gauges with the lower gauge numbers being thicker than the higher gauge numbers (which are thinner)


***Please note the wire comes from a much larger coil and I have tried my upmost to measure exactly 5 meters so the length is approx 5 meters
