WHY THE CHANGE IN PRICE? temporary price drop: regularly $7, now $6 for the small containers, and the large tins are regularly $14, now $12. This is for a limited time only. I'm phasing out both of these sizes, and they will soon be replaced with a medium tin that will be priced in between those two. I also found a local bee farm that I'm working with to bring in even higher quality beeswax, and the same organic coconut oil and essential oils as before-- same product, new packaging, except better. This is to make shopping for thread gloss, and stocking it, easier than ever! Stay tuned-- once these two sizes sell out, I will be switching over. This temporary price drop also means it's easier to share with friends! Use code HELLO15 for a deeper discount on your order.

WHAT IS THREAD GLOSS?
thread gloss is a specially formulated wax and oil blend that coats your thread to prevent tangles, fraying, and brittleness. Think of it as a deep conditioner for your thread and embroidery floss.

WHY DO I NEED IT?
Have you ever had to cut your thread short in the middle of your groove because there was a gnarly knot? Using thread gloss helps prevent tangles and knots, taking away all of the frustration of handwork.

WHAT CRAFTS DO I WANT TO USE IT FOR?
Anything that you're dealing with cotton thread-- hand embroidery, hand quilting, cross-stitch, english paper piecing, applique, repairing clothes, whatever. Simply drag your thread across the gloss pot after threading your needle, applying slight pressure on the thread with your thumb, while pulling with your other hand.

HOW IS THIS PRODUCT MADE?
I worked with a local manufacturer to produce the formula for this supreme quality thread gloss with all natural ingredients. You can learn more about my production partner Olivia and her company, OlyBella here: https://www.olybella.com/story/ Now, I work with my husband to produce this supreme quality thread gloss with all natural ingredients. Produced in small batches in-house since February 2019.

we produce in small batches, and have two sizes available.

Cascades Blend: contains beeswax, coconut oil, and the following essential oils: blue spruce, fraser fir, lemon, and cedar bark. Smells like the hike to the diablo lake overlook, minus suncreen and sweat.

Equinox Blend, aka Basic Bee Blend. Contains beeswax, coconut oil, and the following essential oils and extracts: pumpkin, clove, vanilla, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. The quintessential autumn scent that will make you want to order a venti PSL, scroll pinterest, and live your unapologetically best basic life. Some things are commonly loved for a REASON, right?

ASTORIA BLEND: coconut oil, beeswax, and the following essential oils and extracts: cedar bark, el dorado hops, chinook hops, and bergamot. Smells like a crisp Pacific Northwest IPA: woodsy, fruity, floral, a scent with depth. Astoria blend is a bit more expensive to make than other blends because of the Yakima-valley grown hop oil extracts, that tend to be pricier than other ingredients, but I've decided to keep the price the same. Just know that there's some special ingredients!

COZY BLEND: coconut oil, beeswax, and the following essential oils: patchouli, vanilla, and cedarwood. Smells like warmth, happiness, and joy. It's that hand-scooped vanilla ice cream cone you're eating after riding your bike to the local sugar shop. It's a hearth surrounded by plants, local art, incense, and vintage records playing. It's like settling into home habits with the one you love after your honeymoon. It's crisp and comforting, woodsy with hints of floral.

NEW: TROPICS BLEND: mango, coconut, and sandalwood. Smells like a summer breeze blowing through a resort, like fruity drinks and well-earned vacation days. Flirty and fun.

SHIPPING
If I offered free shipping on this item like I do with most everything else, I would be seriously losing money— I wouldn’t even get the production cost back. If the shipping costs less than what you paid, I’ll refund the overage, of course. All packages are insured. Ships internationally. Orders over $35 ship free domestically.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
--You can use thread gloss on any thread except for silk and nylon. For best results, stick to cotton and cotton-polyester blends. I haven't used thread gloss on yarn. You're welcome to use this product however you want, let me know how it works so I can update this section!
--You're also going to want to store in a cool, dry place. Don't even think about leaving it in the sun! For external use only-- it's totally chill if you get some on your hands when applying to the thread-- just don't eat it. I mean, you'd probably be fine since thread gloss is made with all natural ingredients... but don't.
-- We use totally all natural, unfiltered beeswax. This means that there may be a tiny amount of hive gunk at the very bottom of the gloss pot, but this won't affect the quality of the gloss. The color of the gloss will definitely vary from batch to batch, and between containers, while the consistency and effectiveness remains the same.

WOW! LOVE this thread gloss! Used it on embroidery thread (DMC), which is normally prone to thinning, knotting, (and a lot of hair-pulling I might add) during long and detailed embroidery & sewing projects. It worked like a DREAM! NO knotting or breakage in the middle of my project, even with quite long strands. I'll definitely be back for more....Oh! and smells WONDERFUL, too! ^ - ^

First off, cutest packaging ever. Second off, this stuff smells AMAZING! I was worried it would be overwhelming, but it’s really subtle and fresh smelling. I haven’t had the chance to use it yet, but I’m excited! Edit: this stuff is amazing! The picture is a before and after on Gutermann 100% cotton thread. I normally pre-load several needles before hand quilting and this helps the thread not get tangled. Love it!
