Next Stitch - Thread Balm - The Woody One


This one is soft and creamy, slightly earthy and well, woody

The Woody One Thread Balm which is lightly scented with sandalwood and cedar. Sandalwood is known for its medicinal properties. Its kind of spicy, kind of sweet and kind of creamy, and don't blame Wendy if you don't get much stitching done because you just want to sit and sniff it!  The scent lingers just a little while you work , so hopefully you will get some sewing done - Ha!

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 it it is 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.

I can’t get enough of this scent!

My first time using thread balm and I’m so happy with this purchase. The scent is divine, and the balm conditions the thread so well that it just glides through the fabric. Highly recommend this product


Fab smell! Love it


Looks like I ordered the incorrect scent 😞
Oh well I'll give them as gifts 🎁


Wendy is just awesome to deal with and if you're a sewist this thread balm I'd wonderful for taking your thread when hand stitching. Delivery in a composting bag is just the best.
