A History Lesson

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.

A Natural Resource

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). It is a natural light amber colour (as it should be) — those white beeswaxes have been bleached or have had clay added to make them white. The beeswax we 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.
