Our 12 gauge 14Kt yellow gold filled wire is one of the thickest wires that we carry at Plazko.com. It's great for crafting strong ring shanks for wire wrapping, bracelets, and heavy-duty wire components. 'Dead Soft' refers to precious metal or jewelry wire that has not been hardened at all in the manufacturing process. It's the most malleable type of wire, and is often used in designs needing multiple loops, bends, or complicated weaves.
There is approximately 3 feet per ounce per roll of 14Kt gold filled 12 gauge .081" (2.06mm) dead-soft round wire.
All wires are approximately 1.00 ozt (Troy Ounce). As coils or spools are made on automatic machine, weight may vary from 0.98 ozt to 1.02 ozt. We try our best to keep weight as close to 1.00 ozt as possible.
This wire is measured in Troy Ounce (OZT), not Ounce (OZ). For every 1.00 ozt, there is 1.10 oz.
