All photos were taken in natural light. Appearance of color may vary slightly under different light, and on various computer monitors. Color can also vary depending on the thickness of thread. If you’d like to see our colors first-hand, email jennifer@mainethread.com to request a complimentary color/size card.

Just what I needed

I decided to create my own wind chimes, and Maine Waxed Thread was recommended. Best pricing (checked Amazon and Etsy) was directly through Maine Threads website, which offered so many colors and thicknesses so you find exactly what you need. Shipping was fast, too!

Great company

Gold brown is my go-to thread for the pine needle baskets I make, with ecru as the runner up. The thread is excellent quality at a reasonable price, and Maine Thread ships promptly.

Absolutely amazing thread, and amazing company!! I asked for "low wax" on the tubes I got, and they all came with minimal wax! I'm very pleased!! They also answered my emails right away. Super impressed with this company, and the quality of their thread!!
