Beeswax on threads?

Not a huge post today but did want to share a quick pic.

I know a lot of people wonder about using thread conditioners while stitching. I started using beeswax a while back and really like it. It helps a lot to keep the threads from getting fuzy while working and can help ones that have a little frizz before you even stop.

This is a thread that has a bit of frizz on it toward the end.

This is the same thread after one pass over the beeswax.

It definitely does make a difference. A little goes a long ways so it is a fairly cheap investment. It doesn’t change the look of the thread and won’t mess with the colors over time.

Hope this helps anyone considering it or wondering what it actually does!
