KO Thread


KO thread is made in Japan and is recommended for any project that requires multiples passes through the beads, such as with peyote stitch or bead embroidery.

It is pre-waxed and knots easily. It is .15mm/.0059" in diameter and has 4lb. strength. It is comparable to size B Nymo thread and 4 lb. Fireline. It is very useful for fringe, especially in brick stitch earrings. 

KO is sold by the spool - each spool has 50m of thread (55 yards). It comes in a variety of colors.
