My favorite Linda 7/11/2016 5:04 am Price Quality I've tried other threads - this one is my favorite. NOT GOOD for fringe - too stiff. It's strong & can go through an 11/0 seed bead 4 or 5 times. I noticed the black will leave a little black color on my fingers when working with it. I use mostly the crystal (white). If it gets knotted while working with it, the knots mostly come out easily. Good advice is to leave a tail to finish off your project with a few good knots then weave some of that end back through your beads. I always have an extra spool on hand.....do NOT want to run out of thread when working on a project!
