Great Waxed Cord!
Maine waxed cord is incredibly strong and has the perfect wax formulation. They won't tell me what it is... the secret sauce! I love that it comes in may weights and colors. Perfect for cordwainers, like myself.

Waxed Cord
The waxed cord is great! I have a rope tack business and I use it to sew eye splices, whip tie ends of rope halters, sew halter loops together, plus lots of other things. It is strong, durable and versatile. The color selection is great, too. I have used it since I started my business almost 6 years ago - no need to try anything else. Customer service at Maine Thread is wonderful also!

Fantastic!
It is often so very hard to find materials and products made in America. In this case, I ordered the waxed poly cord and it's exactly what it should be: A high quality product, has many color options, along with a wide array of available gauges/weights. That in itself should be enough, but the icing on the cake is that it's reasonably priced! Even when ordering small amounts for folks like me, the cost and value are superb. Maine Thread is a well-established, American company with a small-town, family run feel. Customers are made to feel welcome and not just an invoice number in the computer. Don't hesitate to shop here! It's what more companies should try to emulate.

Excellent!!!!!
We have a jewelry company and have tried several strings over the years for our products. In this width this is by far the longest lasting, strongest tying and also holds it's color. We love it and love working with Maine Thread Company, who are very service oriented. We recommend without reservation.

Even Better
We loved the .20 waxed chord and used it all the time, but the .30 is even stronger and works well with even small 11/0 seed beads. We highly recommend!!!

Black and Lark Heavy cord
This is the best thread for heavy leather. Has the right thickness and the colors are perfect with the matte finish from the wax coating

Much better than those giant craft shops
I've been using this gimp for various project over the years and had a giant spool that is finally running out. Increasingly it is hard to find this kind of thing except through specialty shops like Maine Thread, especially in smaller towns and cities. The same product is available at three times the price for about a 1/4 the amount at big box craft retailers like Michael's. I'm very pleased to find a good quality supplier.

Good Thread
This thread worked great for my projects and is much cheaper with the same quality as other brands. The size options for different thread are not available from other sources and are very useful.
