I've never been comfortable using a mini Kumi disk before. It just never felt right in my hands. But the double density mini disk has changed that for me. It's easier to hold, and it's sturdy enough to stand up to whatever you're using. I will probably do a lot more disk Kumihimo using this new disk. Thanks for a great product!!
Can be used with any Soft Flex Wire
Great with .019 for the color selection
Kumihimo means 'gathered threads' in Japanese. It is a form of braiding. Kumihimo braids can be used to create decorative lace, cords, jewelry or clothing accessories.
Historically, Kumihimo braids have been used in Samurai armor and weaponry. The braids were used as a functional knit for their armor pieces. Decoratively, it adorned their horses armor and the handles of their swords.
Modern Kumihimo disks are great for the crafter on the go. We love using our ten foot Soft Flex Color Wire spools as bobbins.
Why double density? The thick size makes holding the disk more secure and less bending occurs. Additional tension increased by thickness is useful also when braiding finer threads and wire.
