Farfalle is Italian for Butterflies, which these lovely litle beads resemble. The more popular name in the US is Peanut bead, maybe a bit more descriptive. Which ever name you choose to use, these are lovely little beads that fit together very nicely! They are perfect to make spiral ropes with, and you can do interesting patterns with right angle weave. 2mm x 4mm. We offer these in 6" tubes, weighing appx. 32 grams. There are roughly 30 beads per gram, so that means a tube holds 960 beads. Peanut beads are a fun and unexpected seed bead shape. Try them in spiral rope or right angle weave for amazing effects. Any beading needle will work and most threads fit fine.
We can fill large orders for quantity orders on a special order basis, so if you order 6 or more tubes it may take additional time to fill your order.
