Sew Fine Thread Gloss is my new favorite thread conditioner! It works incredibly well and the scents are very fun. I'm a fan!

... I'm really enjoying the way it conditions the thread too! I have less tangles and the thread seems to go through the fabric smoother. I highly recommend this product and can't wait to order more!

I'm loving my Sew Fine! I use it to coat my thread when needle turning and EPPing. I find that I definitely have less knots and tangles when I use it. And... the scents are so yummy! I recommend to all of my handwork students.
As a kid, did you ever come across your granny’s sewing kit and wonder why there was a gnarly chunk of beeswax in there? Well, your gran was/is a smart woman. For generations, sewists and tailors everywhere have been using beeswax as a natural thread conditioner to give them smooth and tangle-free quilting and hand-stitching. It also helps to provide additional strength to natural threads such as cotton and silk, as well as to help prevent thread fraying.
Sew Fine Thread Gloss is made with locally sourced beeswax that has NOT been chemically processed. It is handmade in a variety of scents (as well as a natural beeswax/honey scent) in small batches just outside Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is a natural light amber colour (as it should be) – those white beeswaxes have been bleached or have had clay added to make it white. The beeswax I source is one step away from the hive – filtered once to separate it from the honey and any leftover hive particles. Each pot contains 0.5oz of thread gloss.
