.030” - Size 2

.035” - Size 1

.040” - Size 0

.045” - Size 00

Quality USA product and great service.

When I heard about Maine Thread I emailed them for samples and they're eye quick to respond and deliver. I ordered the yellow twisted and I am very impressed. It's not over waxed and thread very nicely. You won't go wrong ordering from Maine Thread.

Wonderful Thread
I ordered the Yellow in .40 for a project I havent gotten around too but recently was charged with making a holster made to look as if it had come from Louis Vuitton so I finally got a chance to try the thread. I hand sew and this thread was a pleasure to use. Just enough wax! Some thread I buy has so much wax on it that it is difficult and messy to use. This was wonderful. the thread has a firm texture and the color was oh so juicy. I will be on the site again tomorrow picking up more thread in more colors. Thread is great and the price is nice.

yellow waxed cord.
I've purchased Scarlet and royal blue waxed cord. Both are easy to use. Strong, tough thread, holds stitched leather like a vice. Sews and pulls through punched leather like hot knife through butter. I am and will continue to be a repeat customer.

yellow thread
I am very happy with the .040 yellow waxed cord that I purchased. It kind of flattens out when I use it to stitch the soles on toddler shoes that I make, so there's nothing to rub inside the shoe. And, the fact that it is polyester works well for this purpose, in that it doesn't degrade while being worn. The color range is terrific!

Great stuff
As much as I hate hand stitching leather, Maine thread makes it much more enjoyable. A very well made thread, with just the right amount of wax, consistent color throughout, and very easy threading through harness needles. You will love this stuff.
