Kumihimo (which means "gathered thread") is a form of braiding developed by the Japanese. The kumihimo disk is made of sturdy, latex-free EVA foam which holds the threads firmly.
Kumihimo braiding uses a variety of cord and thread materials, including imitation silk, silk and nylon thread, hemp cord, macramé cord and more. The user-friendly Huggy Spool® makes great cord bobbins for kumihimo-style braiding. Instructions included with reference chart and additional tips. Label designs on disk may vary.
