The color is great, and useful for my projects, as I use a lot of metallics in my work. The thread is strong, does not fray easily unless I rip out/undo some rows, and I can usually use it with crystal (just don't yank). I'm a really tight beader, and it's great. It is easy to thread, and I do recommend using wax with it. I have used this for over two years, having given up braided thread, and hope that it is never discontinued.
I purchased these "beading threads and the first time that I tried them, the strand broke, even though I had doubled the strands. It is a lot of trouble to bead and bad to lose it all.
Excellent Nylon Beading Thread
KO Nylon Japanese Beading Thread is wonderful to work with. Its smooth surface glides through Delica beads with virtually no fraying, splitting or tangling. In my opinion, it's better than Nymo. I like working with it so much that I just purchased the 12-spool assortment. Highly recommended!
