With worldwide recognition for their high-quality, sizing consistency and smooth holes, Toho seed beads are a pleasure to work with and will continue to add beauty to your finished project for years to come.
While less expensive beads have finishes that may chip and peal over time, Toho's quality beads have a lovely finish that stays smooth and lustrous, year after year, even with gentle hand-washing. So you can create with confidence, knowing that your wonderful garment will retain its beauty for years to come.
Their smooth holes insure that whether you thread several onto a strand of yarn, or place them in your knitting onto individual stitches, each bead will slide on easily without snagging or pulling the yarn.
These beads are large enough that their weight could distort projects made in finer yarns weighing more than the yarn can comfortably handle, and pulling the garment out of shape. (For smaller beads more suitable for sports weight and fingering weight yarns please visit our other bead pages.)
The clear crystal of these beads adds a subtle glitter and depth to the yarn's colour. The AB (aurora borealis) finish has a delicate rainbow effect when the light strikes it.
An exquisite addition to all and any knit and crochet project!
For your convenience we are also carrying large (split) eye beading needles that will work with these beads and all of our yarns. Please click here to check them out!
