I had been using ZambaPro wire for some time in the "Fine" strength, and really liked it. Then, when this was taken over by ArtBeads, it seemed as though it was thicker and did not drape as well. So, I decided to try the "Ultrafine" to see if this would be the same as my old favorite. However, it is finer. It might work out well, though. Seems very strong. I'll just have to give it some time to be sure that it will hold as well.
