Wish I had discovered this a long time ago. The foam kumihimo disk is lightweight but sturdy and makes it easy to wrap. I will need to order another one I think because I am wearing this one down.

Great for beginners!
By Helen Z. on May 30, 2018

Before ordering this disk, I had never done kumihimo with beads. However, this small disk is a life-saver! Learning a new beading technique can be daunting, but this disk helped me keep my strands neat and organized. I have already made a couple of bracelets with the disk and I am looking forward to graduating to necklaces and the other endless possibilities that kumihimo offers. Pictured below is one of the bracelets I have made with the kumihimo disk.

Kumihimo disk
By Barbara Dowd on January 27, 2016

I am learning this technique and using the form to do so. The letters and numbers have been rubbing off. The form is strong enough to work and rework as I learn this. It is a good size for my hand.

Versatile Kumihimo Disc
By Anonymous on May 10, 2015

A small kumihimo disc has two advantages. It is portable so it can be an excellent travel companion. Also, it saves thread ends from wasting, thanks to its small diameter. This disc securely and nicely hold threads so that my kuminimo beading projects have consistent size and shape. However, it was extra firm in the very beginning. It gave too much tension to threads. As a result, beads kept popping out of threads. I would suggest playing with it for a while until you see it is customized. After that, it becomes a nice, durable tool.
