16g wire is heavier than you need in everyday millinery. We use it for making structures like headbands (bandeau) where 19g wire is not strong enough. Covered millinery wire is helpful because when we sew it to an edge, it stays in place rather than move around. Rayon covered wire is a glossy, professional-looking finish and doesn’t necessarily need to be covered by something else when making a hat. In addition, it can be coloured with markers to match hair colours or headpieces.
