Matsuno Japanese Peanut "Farfalle" 2 x 4 mm Opaque Black Beads, 23 GM Tube. Farfalle' is Italian for Butterflies, which these lovely little beads resemble. The more popular name in the US is Peanut Bead, maybe a bit more descriptive. The shape of the Peanut bead is like two size 11 seed beads stuck together with the hole in the middle. They will fit together easily and make beautiful patterns. They are perfect to make spiral ropes with, and you can do interesting patterns with right angle weave. There are roughly 33 beads per gram. Any beading needle will work and most threads fit fine.
