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.

We've been using this waxed cord for wrapping the Kokedama we make. Its held up well even under the wet conditions we keep it in. We like it a lot.

Much better than those giant craft shops
I've been using this gimp for various project over the years and had a giant spool that is finally running out. Increasingly it is hard to find this kind of thing except through specialty shops like Maine Thread, especially in smaller towns and cities. The same product is available at three times the price for about a 1/4 the amount at big box craft retailers like Michael's. I'm very pleased to find a good quality supplier.

Good Thread
This thread worked great for my projects and is much cheaper with the same quality as other brands. The size options for different thread are not available from other sources and are very useful.

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.

This is the best cords for making necklaces. Love the great strength and selection of colors!!

Waxed cord is outstanding. It makes a tight knot, does not tangle.and lasts for years. I use it mostly in the yard to tie up this and tie down that. If you change your mind, you have to cut the thread. Of course I use it as thread if I have to repair any fabric in the yard chairs. Even boxes that are going to be stored benefit from the endurance of this binding.

Waxed cord
Waxed cord from Maine Thread Co. is my favorite thread to use for making pine needle baskets. Strong, uniform and a wide range of colors and weights. A quality product all the way around. Much appreciated the free sample card, taking the guess work out of color and weight choices.

Maine Thread for Crafts
I am a professional basketmaker, and I am delighted with the quality of Maine Thread for small baskets. I decorate with beads and it is easy to slip the beads on the .035-sized thread. Their product is also much cheaper than any other that I've found.
