Sew Fine Thread Gloss is my favorite hand sewing notion in my sewing bag. Cut a length of any kind of hand sewing thread (embroidery floss, sashiko thread, etc) and run it through the beeswax-based thread conditioner to coat your thread and prevent knotting and tangling. This one is inspired by our household’s favorite tea, Earl Grey. A blend of bergamot citrus and black tea, with the comfort of quintessential British teatime.
To use: thread your needle and lay the thread close to the needle on the thread gloss. Using your thumb, put light pressure on the thread while you pull the thread along the top of the thread gloss. One or two light pulls should be plenty! Knot your thread and start stitching! (Another tip- You can also pull the tip of the cut thread through the thread gloss to help your thread it much easier.)
