Color

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.

Needles

Many crafters use harness needles when sewing with waxed cord. Harness needles have a rounded point and are often used for hand-stitching leather. We recommend the following pairings for needle and thread

.020” - Size 3

.030” - Size 2

.035” - Size 1

.040” - Size 0

.045” - Size 00
