Kumihimo (which means "gathered thread") is a form of braiding developed by the Japanese. This kumihimo disk is made of 3/8 inch thick, latex-free EVA foam which holds the threads firmly while creating kumihimo braids.
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. Latex free.
