Love this thread

I make pine needle baskets and have used this thread in various colors. It works much better than other waxed threads I’ve used. Also, delivery is always prompt.

WELL WORTH IT!

I was having a hard time finding the right diameter and coated wax to use with my horses. I reached out to a friend to see what they use, and this is the website they recommended. The yarn is always in good condition, the shipping is quick, the prices are affordable, and the customer service is stellar. I have had nothing but good luck and success with all of the yarns I have purchased- and I plan to only from this website from now on. Well worth the money!
