Thread Balm by The Next Stitch


The Next Stitch thread balm is 100% natural and hand made in Australia using only locally sourced beeswax.

A light coat of thread conditioner reduces knots and tangles when hand sewing. It lubricates the thread and reduces friction and fraying, particularly when hand quilting through all those layers.

Beeswax can be very hard and even brittle in chilly climates and with age. TNS thread balm base has been specially formulated so that it will stay soft for easy application, but not so soft that it's goopy and glugs up your thread.

Choose between

:: Lavender
perfect for a bit of evening stitching as you unwind at the end of the day

:: Lemon-scented Gum
lightly scented with essential oils and has a fresh citrusy aroma that is zingy and invigorating

:: Natural
a soft, sweet hint of honey when you use this thread conditioner

To use: thread your needle and lay the thread close to the needle on the thread gloss. Using your thumb, put light pressure on the thread while you pull the thread along the top of the thread gloss. One or two light pulls should be plenty. Knot your thread and start stitching!
