Great Thread!
I needed a waxed cord for a project and these guys came highly recommended. It worked out great. Rich color and just the right amount of wax. It also singes very well. Nice tight burn all the way to the stitch hole. Will definitely buy again.

Best company & products
Maine Thread is most efficient and simple website to use. Products are best for our projects. My wife would use no other product for her work. Why look elsewhere when Maine Thread provides the best, and they are an American manufacturer!

I use the Chestnut Waxed Cord on all of my pine needle/gourd baskets. It simply can not be surpassed in quality and ease of use. The wax is always perfect with no "globs" I also teach pine needle/gourd basketry and recommend it to my students. Plus I provide a spool for each student when they take their first class. The quality, color choice and Maine Threads excellent service makes the choice easy.

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.
I used to use Tiger Thread, but after giving Maine Thread a shot with my leatherwork, I am hooked. I also love the fact that this is made in America and supports small businesses. Keep the new colors coming!
Huge fan. Made in America and perfect for leatherwork. Plus, the color selection is unbeatable!
