Waxed Threads

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.

Our basic waxed thread comes in 70-yard tubes and 12 / 24 yard coils. We also have: waxed polyester-linen for fine leather, cloth, and upholstery; embalmer's thread for tight straight hand stitches; bank line for heavy-duty netting, bushcraft, snares, and whipping; and beeswax cubes to make any thread into a waxed thread,

Henry Campbell &Co. of Belfast Ireland's polyester-linen blend made stronger and stiffer by a light coat of wax

A tightly twisted waxed that gives  straight, fine, hand-sewn stitches. Use it for taxidermy, leatherwork, shoe repair, and yes, preparing the deceased.

Super-strong, weather and sunlight resistant,  waxy nylon cord. Use it for fish and tennis nets, bushcraft, snares, whipping, and even corn brooms.

Use beeswax to make any thread into a waxed thread. It just takes a little time and patience to get a perfect coating.
