Seed Beads: Cylinders

Japanese cylinder bead are popular for both loom bead weaving and off-loom bead needle weaving. They may also be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewellery. In addition to beading many crafters used seed beads in their knitting, crochet, spinning, embroidery, felting and textile projects.
 
Cylinder beads are uniform in shape and size and the ends are flat instead of rounded meaning that work created with cylinder beads has a flat, smooth texture. Miyuki Delica's are probably the best known cylinder beads in the U.K. (so much so that the word 'delica' has become a generic word for cylinder beads) but here at The Bead Cellar we really like Toho Aiko and Toho Treasures. Toho seed beads in general have larger holes which allows for more thread passes - often a crucial consideration for beaders!  
 
We also stock a wide variety of glass seed beads in a variety of sizes and colours from the two most popular high quality Japanese manufacturers - Toho and Miyuki.  Japanese beads are considered the best quality seed beads available and our range invludes Toho Seed Beads and other shaped beads in addition to cylinder beads.
