Bees Wax might seems like a bit of an odd addition to a sewing kit but for some techniques it is essential.

We sell our goldwork kits including a wax so that you can use it to strengthen your thread.

‘Why?’ you ask, well in goldwork in particular, the metal can be a bit on the sharp/rough side so the wax helps to add a protective barrier to the thread and to keep it smooth whilst you are working with it  as it passes through the many layers of work that are often built up in goldwork.

Waxing your thread for embroidery can be used for other embroidery techniques too, so you may find for some more challenging projects that your thread may benefit from wax.

For use: Pass the thread through the slots in the holder smoothly, using the hand holding the case to tension the thread and the other to pull it though in one motion (to avoid any clumps).
