Braided Waxed Cord Standard Colors Package

I really like this thread. It looks and works great. It's very strong. A++

Best thread ever

I’ve used many braided threads, but nothing like this one. It’s just brilliant: not aggressive with my hands, good amount of wax and perfect thickness- just under 0.6.

I love it. It’s an outstanding product.

Nice strong thread

This is really nice thread, very well made and very easy to work with. This sampler pack has all the common colors and will be a great starter pack of the braided threads!

Great thread, with the perfect amount of wax. I'm thrilled to have found a quality American made product to use in my products. Thanks!
