All the tools you need to create round Kumihimo braids for friendship bracelets, beaded bracelets and necklaces, straps for glasses or bags, dog leads, hair braids, decorative edging for embroidery projects ...anything you can think of.

The kit contains the following items:

  • Kumihimo Disc - 10.8cm diameter x 9mm thick foam. Holds the threads firmly as you braid.
  • Bobbins - Eight 6cm diameter x 2.5cm/1.2cm, clear soft plastic spools. Used to stop the threads getting tangled as you create the braid. Wrap the thread around the open spool and click it closed to capture it.
  • Counterweight - 100g steel weight to balance the weight of the bobbins and threads/threads plus beads. As the braid forms, the counterweight pulls it down through the hole in the disc and maintains even tension.
  • Instruction leaflet - Google ‘Kumihimo’ for further patterns and ideas.
  • Braids in photos not included.

 

All you need to supply is the thread - fine or thick silks, embroidery cotton, wool, C-Lon thread, S-Lon thread, satin rattail cord. You can even thread beads onto your thread and make Kumihimo beaded ropes for brackets and necklaces. Use thin weight threads to create a thin round braid, and thick weight threads to create a large round braid.

The technique is easy and fun to learn and you get a quick sense of achievement.
