Sew Fine Thread Gloss: Orange Blossom
Sew Fine Thread Gloss is my favorite thread conditioner!
This listing is for one tin of "Orange Blossom" Sew Fine Thread Gloss. Having spent most of my life around orange groves, I can tell you that there is nothing better than the smell of orange blossoms when they start to bloom in the spring. This distinct scent takes me to that time of year. I find this highly floral, slightly citrusy scent to be very fresh, a bit green and very invigorating. As with all of the Sew Fine Thread Glosses, the scents are well-managed and not overpowering.
This exclusive scent is the result of a special collaboration between me and Sew Fine Thread Gloss of Canada.
Each tin contains 0.5oz of thread gloss.
Why condition your threads?
The short answer is that you'll have fewer knots in your thread when doing any kind of handwork. It makes a difference! To read more about my thoughts and practices with thread conditioner, and the story behind this special collaboration, check out my blog post here. (I'm a total thread nerd.)
How to Use
After cutting your length of thread, slide it across the wax with your thumb applying a light pressure so the thread makes contact with the wax. I usually drag the thread across the wax 2-3 times before using a garment knot to finish. Thread your needle and get to stitching!
About Sew Fine
Sew Fine Thread Gloss is made with locally sourced beeswax that has NOT been chemically processed. It is handmade in small batches just outside Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The light amber color is attributed to this wax being very natural and only one step away from the hive, with absolutely no bleaching or other additives. The beeswax is filtered just once to separate it from the honey and from any leftover hive particles.
