Needle for elastic thread?

I just bought some elastic thread to try but I can't get it threaded through my needle. Is there a special kind of needle to use or should I just try to find a threader in all my junk?

TIA!!

What type of needle are you using? I use an embroidery or yarn needle for elastic thread. Or, if push comes to shove, a safety pin.

I *believe* that if you are using it on a sewing machine you only put it on the bobbin and have regular thread in the needle, but I'm no expert. i just remember reading that in a book.

Duh! I was thinking about threading it through something. Ignore my response. Yes, when sewing with elastic thread as thread I've wound it on a bobbin and left the regular thread on the spool.
