Product Details



All photos were taken in natural light. Appearance of color may vary slightly under different light, and on different computer monitors. Color can also vary depending on the thickness of the thread. You can always email  to receive a complimentary color card just to be sure you make the right color choice.


Many crafters use harness needles when sewing with waxed cord. Harness needles have a rounded point and are often used for hand-stitched leather craft work. See above for our recommended needle and thread pairings. To order, click here.

Excellent product
My sister in law ordered from this company and was very satisfied w product. We wanted to try more colors & again we are very satisfied w the product & the prompt service. We live in the 'boondocks' so it is wonderful to find this combination!

A good red thread
Not as garishly-bright as some other companies' waxed thread products, Maine Thread's red waxed polyester has a rich, aged 'country' look that works well with knotted jewelry and craft projects.

.30 Maine Thread
I love this thread for pine needle basket weaving. I find it's great for the simple and diamond stitches. Thank you Maine Thread ! Gail Embry

Wax thread
Strong waxed thread was not available locally. Order was filled promptly used for needed repairs.

I love the color of this thread. It is exactly what I need and I will be ordering a lot more of it. It is strong--other thread that I have used kept breaking--and thin. The service at Maine Thread is so fast. I love it!

Great for pine needle baskets
The .035" is great for pine needle baskets. It gives a great rustic look and holds tight without having to pull too hard. The only con is if you too long a cord (about three arm lengths) it will start to untwist. But less is fine.

Love this stuff
I embroider baseballs and needed waxed thread to re-stitch. Tried other threads but nothing beats yours. I can re-stitch in half the time because when I pull it tight, it stays tight. All my future orders of waxed thread will definitely be from you.

waxed cord
I was quite surprised at how friendly and willing to please the phone staff was when I initially called with an inquiry and even more so, when I received the sample card just a few days later. I entered my order on line and received it within three days--fantastic customer service and a great product. The colors and quality of the cord are superb!!

Scarlet waved cord
Excellent service, fast delivery and high quality products. I would recommend this product, and will be a repeat customer. I am pleased with the color selection of the waxed thread, not the same boring black, brown or off white. Enjoyed doing business with y'all.

Always a high quality and strong product perfect for leatherwork! I bought one in almost every color, so if you recognize this review, I posted it more than once.

Amazing products!
Fast processing and shipment. Great quality thread, with tons of options regarding sizes & colors. If you're making leather goods, these are a must buy.

High quality product. Color is even and does not fade. Waxing is stiff but not 'GUNKY'; virtually no wax residue builds up on your hands as you work with the products. Very durable, and ages nicely with wear.

I have ordered waxed poly cord from MaineThread a number of times. The shipping is fast, and returns (I ordered the wrong size) were processed quickly and courteously.
The scarlet was a perfect red, and .035 was a good thickness for book binding. Very happy with the quality and strength, I won't even bother buying anywhere else!
Very happy to have such a range of colors in heavier waxed threads.
I'm just beginning to add colored threads to my shoe/boot making.
Now if I could only find just the right technique to get such nice tapers as you offer on your other threads...?
