Beeswax is used in embroidery to lubricate the sewing thread. Simply pull the thread through the wax, run your fingers down the thread to remove any excess wax, thread in a needle and stitch as normal. It is especially useful for goldwork projects to prevent the thread from fraying when in contact with the metal threads.  It is also used for waxing the soft string used for padding. It is also used in sewing, quilting, cross stitch and beading to help strengthen the sewing thread and to prevent tangles.


This product is 100% real beeswax and comes in a heart shape, made by The Art of the Needle.

The colour may vary from that shown due to the natural variations present in beeswax.
