Collection: Maine Thread-Made in the U.S.A.

We call it waxed cord, you may call it waxed thread, and others refer to it as waxed string or waxed twine. No matter what you call it, the point is waxed cord has more uses than names. Hand sewing moccasins, saddlery, bagpipe reed construction, stringing beads, leather working, taxidermy, dream catchers, basket making, and numerous other arts and craft projects just to name a few.

Main Thread Company starts with yarn that has been textured and dyed. In their factory, they do the rest. They create different sizes by plying up individual strands of yarn. From there, the thread is twisted, waxed, and either cut to length, or wound on the small spools you see here. From start to finish, their team takes care in each step of the process to ensure this thread maintains the strong quality their customers have depended on for generations.
