"Beading enthusiasts everywhere are lauding the development of this great new Japanese beading thread (by Master Beader Sonoko Nozue) now available as an alternative to Nymo. K.O. thread is a pre-waxed, colorfast, abrasion/tangle resistant thread, which can be knotted tightly. Similar in size to a Nymo size B, K.O can be used with a size 10 or size 12 beading needle. It is identical to TOHO brand One G thread."
