Product Details

  • Miyuki Delica size 11/0 glass beads are cylindrical with square ends and are uniform in size
  • The center hole is large which makes them light and allows your thread to pass through the bead multiple times
  • There are very few imperfect beads needing to be culled

Beads are sold in our clear plastic rectangular tubes with easy open flip top lids

Unless marked differently, each tube contains approximately 5 grams which is 900 to 1000 beads (approx. 600 beads when sold in 3 gram quantity). The variation in quantity is due to the different finishes on the beads.

Durability information
This data is based on Miyuki's examination result and manufacturing history. It is not absolute, therefore it differs in an individual use and condition. Please test a sample before using if you have a concern.

B Colors rubbing off from friction or contact with skin acid.
C Colors which will alter or fade from dry-cleaning.
0 There is no problem in usual use.
- There might be a problem in durability by individual use..
X There is not strong durability, so attention is required for use.
Please follow appropriate handling referring to the above information and the following notices when they are applied to textile goods or accessories that touch the skin directly.
Some beads are dyed, galvanized or plated. The colors on the outer layers may come off, rubbed, or if soaked in the strong solvent.
Silverline or galvanized beads are oxidized while apply on certain fabrics that are acidic, they may decay or turn dark due to the chemical change. In order to avoid such case, neutralize your fabrics and threads before embroidering.
Some dyed color beads might fade by the sunlight.


We have provided a color sample for each bead color, however please use these only as a rough guide. The actual color may vary significantly from the sample picture. This variation is due to the different finishes on the beads and how they react to different light sources. Computer monitors may show colors differently.
