Excellent For Hand Stitching Leather
This polyester cord has greater tensil strength than nylon thread and comes in hard to find colors that leather suppliers don't offer. And, while this cord is waxed, it is NOT over waxed as most of the thread sold by leather suppliers is. It seems to have the perfect balance of wax added to if I had waxed it myself....saving me a great deal of time. And even better, it's made right here in the good old USA. The only thread I'll use from now on...and I've tried most of them.

Better than linen
I use a lot of waxed cord in bookbinding and jewelry-making, and Maine Thread's products are my favorite. The color range works for nearly everything I do, and the even diameter (unlike linen) means that I don't have to worry about slubs catching and breaking. I've been using Maine Thread's waxed polyester thread since 2004, and older pieces look and wear just like new. Maine Thread's customer service is amazing, too. I placed my most recent order over the Christmas break, fully expecting that it wouldn't be shipped until the company reopened the first week of January. Nope - they mailed it within a day of my order!

Great to deal with
These folks are great to deal with. They sent us a full set of samples, and their products are strong and long-lasting. We use the waxed cord to stitch up leathers on (boat) oars.

Great quality, inacurate color
I haven't had a bad purchase yet from mainthread, however I was disappointed with the color of this brown. The brown seems to have a green-ish tint to it. You don't notice it just by looking at the thread, but when put against a few shades of brown leather the "tint" is pronounced. I'll keep the thread and make use of it, but a bit disappointed in the color.

The Best
As a return customer, I can't say enough about the quality and service here. I use the thread for hand stitching in leather products and I have never had a problem with the quality of the thread. Filling and sending of orders is very fast and "handling" fees.

Waxed cord
Waxed cord from Maine Thread Co. is my favorite thread to use for making pine needle baskets. Strong, uniform and a wide range of colors and weights. A quality product all the way around. Much appreciated the free sample card, taking the guess work out of color and weight choices.

Can't Beat This Value
I have been ordering this thread for the last six months and am on my third shipment. It's comes with a good coat of wax and ships very quickly.

Waxed Polycord
I've ordered Waxed polycord twice and I am vary satisfied of the quality of the product. I use it to make sheaths. It is durable and the amount of wax applied is just right. The cord stays in place and slides through the leather when stitching. They have a large selection of colors and size. Maine Thread Co. ships quickly with great communication through the process. I would recommend this product.

Waxed Thread
I've been doing leatherwork for several years. This is the only thread I use now. It is far better than the thread sold by Tandy and other outlets. Always get fast shipping and great prices.
