Nymo Thread (O)
NYMO THREAD. Size: O
When considering using this thread, think about your pattern, and if weaving with many passes through beads smaller than an 11/0 you may need to use the size O. Test the thread out before trying, if you think there will be too many passes through and the hole might become blocked. Grab the smallest bead from your chosen design and thread your needle, then go backwards and forwards filling the bead up with thread, to see how many passes will go through.
If you want to make an item such as Bead Shack's Shabby Chic Bracelet which has many many passes through the beads, you will be grateful for this extra fine thread!
Tip: Using thread that is too thick when bead weaving can risk breaking your beads when pulling your needle through, if the hole in the bead is too full with previous thread passes.
Industrial nylon Nymo thread is an excellent choice for stringing small beads. It consists of non-twisted fibre filament. It's easy to thread and a basic for all sorts of stringing needs. Great for stringing craft projects and creating wearable beaded projects.
Tip: Nymo bobbins have their size on one side of the paper bobbin, like an imprint pushed into the paper. (Although some of them I've noticed recently don't have this.) If you colour the imprint with a pen when you first receive your Nymo, you will always be able to see immediately which size it is! Also it is very handy to write the name of the colour onto the bobbin as soon as you receive your order. We have attempted to write them on for you on the stock on hand, but we can't promise we will also have time (or remember) to do this when new stock is arriving.
