Different types of thread have different numbering or lettering systems. Generally, the lower the number or letter, the thinner the thread. For example, silk threads run from 00, the thinnest through FFF, the thickest.
For more specific information on many types of threads and stringing materials, review the ''Types and Sizes of Beading Thread and Stringing Material'' chart.
