I have wanted to place beads in hand spun yarn, but I was apprehensive due to the small orifice on my spinning wheel. I learned how to place beads onto yarn as I knit and I recently purchased a tool to help with this. It is called the Fleegle Beader and you can purchase one here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/173242202/13mm-fleegle-beader-please-read-the?ref=shop_home_active_3
In order to string beads onto hand spun yarn, I
used pink thread with pink beads and plied it to blue yarn. To string the beads onto the thread, I used a bead spinner. I have one that is battery operated, but I am not sure where I put it. They is what happens when you get older. You can't find things and you don't know what you are looking for. LOL I like the new designs where you just spin them by hand. I got a junior sized bead spinner. Mine is like this:
If you purchase one of these, I would suggest to get two needles or hooks because they are small and easy to misplace or loose. I speak from experience because I misplaced mine in plain sight.
I hope you have a great weekend! Dawnie
