When I set in sleeves, sew buttons and jacket chains, I consider beeswax to be an essential, and I know lots of sewers also love it for hand sewing pad stitching, quilting, zippers and hems. It strengthens your thread while leaving it soft, thin and flexible.
Its simple to use - after cutting a length of thread, pull the entire piece slowly through the beeswax ensuring a complete coating, and repeat two or three times....
Then use either a press cloth or some non waxed parchment paper and press with a hot iron for a few seconds, letting the beeswax melt and sink into the threads...
Just don't iron directly on your ironing board, the wax residue and dye will transfer to the board cover and stain!
Due to the nature of natural beeswax, color may vary slightly.
