Have you experienced the frustration of making a tangled mess out of your thread? Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this troublesome problem. The answer is beeswax. Waxing your thread before hand stitching reduces static cling, and helps to prevent tangles. These 1 ounce beeswax portions are also good for conditioning thread where you need strength and durability.
Here is how you use it: cut a length of thread approximately 2 to 3 feet long, then pass the thread once or twice through the beeswax. Hold the threaded needle in one hand, lay the thread on the beeswax, the thread should cut into the wax slightly, and pull the thread through the wax.
TIP: If you are planning on doing a lot of hand sewing, prep a few strands of thread at a time.
This process creates a smooth, manageable thread that is a pleasure to sew with.
