This Nylon thread is the thread of choice for beadworking and beadweaving. Slightly waxed and lightly twisted if you do not stretch an arms length of this thread with a bit of a tug as you unwind the thread from the spool or bobbin, you finished work may eventually "ease" creating a relaxed feel to the piece. Remember this is a nylon product so you can easily "burn" a blob (Knot) in the end of your work with a lighter and a quick puff of air to blow it out.
