Basket thread
I was very pleased that the thread came in such a timely manner. I'll be teaching pine needle basketry at the John C. Campbell Folk School and was hoping the thread would arrive in time for my class. It came in today's mail, and I leave tomorrow morning. I love your thread. Thanks. Jean

Waxed Cord
I am really impressed by the quality of your thread. I really like it. It is easy to use and easy on my fingers. I create macrame jewelry and hangers. I love the colors that you have. I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

Great for pine needle baskets
The .035" is great for pine needle baskets. It gives a great rustic look and holds tight without having to pull too hard. The only con is if you too long a cord (about three arm lengths) it will start to untwist. But less is fine.

Beautiful shade of blue!
This turquoise cord was a little darker than I imagined it being, but that has turned out to be wonderful - it mixes well with all the other colors I chose (orange, yellow, emerald). Making bracelets out of this color continues to be so fun!

Superb color!
As soon as I received my order of this turquoise waxed cord (0.30), I started a pine needle basket to see if it was easy to work with compared to the Irish waxed linen that I used before. To the touch, it is a little rougher and less tacky in hand but it works really well and is even less prone to getting tangled than the linen. I think that for the price which is much less than the Irish waxed is a very good price/quality ratio! I highly recommend this thread.

Not braided
The waxed threads I recieved are fantastic and great quality but being a beginner it wasn't clear enough to me they were only twisted not braided so the thread tends to un twine unlike braided. Beyond that fantastic product.

Just what we were looking for!
This is exactly what we were looking for. Wanted the ability to "Melt" the ends. This works great!

great product
I coil pine needle baskets and I find the Maine Thread products to be just as beautiful and strong as the waxed Irish Linen I have used in the past. The shipping rates are unbelievably low for my order!

Always a high quality and strong product perfect for leatherwork! I bought one in almost every color, so if you recognize this review, I posted it more than once.
