Per Gram: Approximately 108 beads
Unmatched in terms of shape, color variety and size consistency, Delica beads are the preferred bead for projects that require extreme precision and detail. Delicas have a perfectly cylindrical shape and a large, even hole. This gives them amazing versatility! You can use them with square graphs such as cross-stitch patterns, giving you the ability to explore and create a wider variety of designs and styles.
Delicas have been referred to as a "contemporary" bead (brick or peyote-style applications) which lends itself to being pigeon-holed as such but due to their large hole and uniformity many beaders are using them in place of seed beads. Your loomed pieces will have a much smoother feel and appearance, not to mention improved shaping for your spiral or rosette beading projects. See your projects take on a whole new level of detail and sophistication.
