This thread is suggested by Nora Corbett for adding beads to her designs using a size 10 beading needle. This is an alternative to using two strands of matching stranded cottons.
I found it impossible to thread the beading needle with two strands of floss and even the invisible thread is very difficult to get through the needle eye. I found the best way was to use a black or dark background. Once threaded I found it was easier to knot the end and use double, otherwise it kept slipping off the needle.
I tried using long lengths to cut down on the number of times I had to thread my needle but that caused the problem of snagging on beads already in place.
The advantage of the thread is that it's strong, invisible and may be used for all the beads in the embroidery. Being invisible is also the main disadvantage.
Overall it was probably the better option for me and I will use it on all future projects with beads.
