I have been making and selling Czech beaded ladder stitch bracelets.  One customer had brought here triple length one back twice!  It keeps warping on the first and third loops.  I am using 1.8mm Greek leather, silk thread.  Do I need a thread w stretch? I don't want to be selling jewelry that has problems!

Thank you!

A.  Your tension may be too tight

B.  Are you using one or 2 weavers? I find 2 weavers coming in from opposite directions are better than one

C. What size bead are you using?  6/o's will probably sit more comfortable in the leather you're using than 8/o" or smaller
