Waxed Thread

Waxed thread, or cord, has a light wax coating that makes it stiffer, more water and mildew resistant, and stronger. It is mainly used for hand sewing work that requires strong, long-lasting, water-tight seams. Machine sewing is possible for those willing to clean the waxy residue the thread leaves.

Tubes--Hollow center / 70 yards

Rolls--Solid center / 400 too 800 yards

Coils--U.S. Quarter size / 12 to 24 yards.
