Next Stitch - Thread Balm - Lemon-scented Gum
The zingy one
The Lemon-scented Gum thread balm is lightly scented with essential oils and has a fresh citrus-y aroma that is is zingy and invigorating.
Just like the name suggests this one smells of the Australian bush. The notes of lemon and eucalyptus are refreshing yet comforting in their familiarity. The gentle waft as you stitch is the perfect pick-me-up at the end of a busy day.
This one and will be loved by folk who aren't into floral scents.
Our thread balm is 100% natural and hand made in Australia using only locally sourced beeswax.
A light coat of our thread conditioner reduces knots and tangles when hand sewing. It lubricates the thread and reduces friction and fraying, particularly when hand quilting through all those layers.
Beeswax can be very hard and even brittle in chilly climates and with age. Our thread balm base has been specially formulated so that it will stay soft for easy application, but not so soft that its goopy and glugs up your thread.
The thread balm comes in a slider-topped, flat tin so that it is easy to lay your thread on top and use. Just hold your thread between the tin and your finger and pull. Then run your thread through your fingers and you are ready to stitch
Please note: It may smell good enough to eat - but we don't want you to do that. It may also contain traces of tree nuts.
