Love this thread!
This particular red in the Nymo brand is not a true red. I had intended to use it for stitching Swarovski Siam crystals with red 8/0 seed beads to make earrings. Unfortunately I will have to return the Nymo.
Excellent Quality and Color
For a visual, it's similar to flat waxed dental floss and just as strong, perfect for multiple passes through small seed beads (even size 15/0). It hugs the inside of the bead perfectly and you really have to look close to see the thread with red seed beads. For an interesting effect, use it with clear transparent beads. Although small in size, one bobbin goes far.
I still wax to the ends to make threading even easier (I don't use threaders) and then pull once through wax completely to straighten out and prevent tangles. I also reapply as needed. I use a Singer sewing bobbin organizer to store these threads.
