Waxed Thread for Leather Working

Waxed thread is a type of thread that is lightly coated in wax. The wax stiffens the thread, making it stronger. This also enables the thread to be more abrasion-resistant, water-resistant, and stretch less over time.

Waxed threads are great for leather working as they provide a very durable thread that handles well and looks great. Ideal for hand-sewing, these threads are available in a range of colors and thicknesses (weights).
