THREAD

C-LON

A polymer thread similar to Nymo, but much stronger, and in many more colors. Feels more like silk. Use with size #10 or size #12 English beading needles. There are 80 yards of thread (about 73 meters) per bobbin. We currently carry this in sizes D and AA.

Size D is most widely used.

 

NYMO

Nymo thread is an especially strong thread used for beading.  Nymo was created for the shoe industry to attach the bottom of the shoe to the top of the shoe. The sizing is somewhat peculiar, ranging from the thinnest "OO'' and "O" to "A", "B", through the thickest "F".  We carry OO and O which are great for earrings or any piece that requires you to thread and re-thread through a bead many many times.  We carry D which is good for necklaces and bracelets.  For bead stringing, you might still double-up the D thread for any piece.

We sell Nymo on small bobbins, large bobbins, spools (discontinued in 2007, but we still have some in inventory), and cones. The product on the small bobbins is slightly weaker and softer than that on the large bobbins, spools and cones.

Size D is most widely used.

 

ONE-G

Premium nylon beading thread. Size similar to D in Nymo and C-Lon. By Toho.

SONO

Japanese beading thread. Size B. Best with size #12 English Beading Needles. Some people consider this to be a more easily manageable thread.

CONSO G THREAD

#69 on Bobbins (similar to Nymo G, or Griffin Size #2, or C-Lon Micro Bead Cord)
NOTE: 2008: The thread is not currently available, and as we sell out, assume it will be gone for awhile. Check out the C-Lon Micro Bead Cord as a good substitute.

Beading threads are nylon.   Most are shaped like a typewriter ribbon.   Most are bonded with built in abrasion resistance.     If a twisted thread, then there is no built-in abrasion resistance.

We suggest always waxing your threads.
