Edmar Thread Holder

This is the thread holder and puller for the Brazilian threads. Each section holds one skein and carries up to 16 skeins.
The puller is a stiff plastic strip that you fold at one end. Hope this helps those who asked for more information.

How interesting! I think that would work for any of the flosses, too. Doesn't seem to need much room, either. Where did you buy that?

Now this is interesting, never seen anything like this before. Is this how you save the strands from getting all tangled?? How about when you pull one strand out, do they bunch up at all???

Susan I bought the holder from Blackberry Lane, but you should be able to get them in the US at

Sandie, this does keep the threads straight and sometimes if you pull carelessly they can bunch up. I then take them out and replace them with the puller. Pulling them slowly seems to work best.

thanks Maureen. What a brilliant idea, as those threads are so hard to handle. Silly me went and cut mine into pieces to manage better - wrong, big mistake! lol
