The waxed string is a type of thread with a coat of wax, and it can be used for applications including beadwork, hand sewing, leatherwork, and jewelry making. It is made primarily of cotton, polyester, or nylon. It is more durable than other threads.
A waxed string is made by lightly coating individual pieces of thread with wax, most commonly bee's wax. It looks similar to any other type of thread, except that it has a slightly glossy finish and can appear slightly darker than the thread actually is. The thread becomes stiffer, more water and mildew resistant, and less stretchy after waxing. It is widely used for beading, bracelets, braided rugs, hand sewing belts, or watch straps because it leaves a waxy residue.
We offer high-quality waxed string in a variety of thicknesses made from cotton, polyester, or nylon to help finish your projects. In addition, the string can be used as a string material for garments when combined with our hang tags, price tags, or safety pins.
