Beading SuppliesInformation About Nylon Thread2099
General Description: Bonded nylon thread is the best thread for most beadwork. However,
it is not recommended for the warp
threads on a loom because it stretches,
wrinkling the beadwork. Use heavy cotton
thread for the warp.
Nylon thread comes in bobbins, jumbo bobbins and
cones. Size 00 is the finest thread
and used for size 12 beads and
smaller. Size 0 is used for the same
projects as size 00 but is stronger.
Size B is a fine thread of good
thickness for most beadworking
using size 11 beads and bugle beads.
Size D is a heavy beading thread
used with size 10 needles, and usually
size 10 beads or the pony beads.
The heavier size F is used for
sewing, especially on buckskin
using a size 6 glovers needle.
Always coat nylon and cotton
thread with beeswax or conditioner.
