Meet the thread tamer
Hi friends! Its been a while since I've done any introductions, and as so many of you have joined the sew-along earlier this year, and followed alo...
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.
