These Miyuki Delica seed beads 8/0 from Japan are loved for their consistent shape and size and the large clean hole. 

Large Delica Beads (DBL) are size 8/0 Japanese cylinder beads. Like the other sizes of Miyuki Delica Beads DBLs are ideal for beadweaving, but also can be threaded on a thin leather or cord because of their generous hole size. 8/0 Delica beads can be either smooth or six-sided (hex cut), and measure 3.0mm x 2.7mm with a hole size of 1.5mm. Count is approximately 30 beads per gram.

The color numbers are consistent between all Delica sizes (DB,DBM,DBL,DBS) Bead-Weaving using the same pattern as the smaller sizes makes a larger finished size, but keeps the detail. This difference is because of their character. The size of DBL is larger for the 8/0 size, so it has made possible stunning bead designs.

These 3.0mm seedbeads are excellent for embellishment and are often used for knitting. Also enjoyed by those who have been working with seedbeads for a while and are looking for the ease of detail given using larger beads. For consistant numbering and sorting, we use a 4 digit color number at BeadFX.  DBL-1 becomes DBL-0001 etc.  
We invite you to try these exciting new beads. We hope they inspire you to even greater levels of creativity! Most of our Japanese cylinder seed beads Delica 8/0's are packaged in 10 gram tubes.
