Invisible thread before separated into individual strands.

Invisible thread is available in stripped or unstripped form. In an unstripped form the thread is actually a cluster of invisible threads and has to be separated (stripped) to be used in a performance.

Invisible thread may also be constructed from single strands of silk. Edges of silk that are fraying will reveal "invisible thread".[citation needed]
