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. 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.

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.

CAN I ORDER THIS WHOLESALE FOR MY RETAIL LOCATION?
yes yes YES you can!! We have an amazing wholesale rate with a minimum quantity of only 30. Please send me an email at ponderosacreative [!at] gmail.com and I will send you the form to fill out. Free shipping on all USA wholesale orders!

After a very long journey through the US postal service, my package finally arrived today after being seemingly lost for 2 weeks! The seller shipped my order immediately after I purchased so absolutely no complaints there, and shipping timeframes are out of everyone’s hands, but I was eagerly awaiting my gloss and it was totally worth the wait! The thread gloss smells amazing and it was packaged so beautifully in a holographic package and wrapped in a ribbon. I immediately tried some thread with it and it’s wonderful. I’ve used other thread glosses before but they tend to clump on the thread - this one didn’t at all and was super smooth. This will be my new shop for thread gloss! I’m excited to cross stitch with metallic thread again :) thank you Ponderosa Creative!

This was my first step into thread conditioner and I am in love. The scent is delightful. The size is perfect to keep in my mobile stitching kit. And as a totally unexpected bonus, my needles last so much longer! The needles in the photo are the same brand from the same package. Both used for about 2 weeks. The thread gloss protects them from my skin!

THANK YOU. so sweet. I asked for no frills but she only had natural on file, but then she found the no frills and I ended up with both. Very thoughtful and communicative!

I sent some thread gloss to my sister recently, and man! We love Ponderosa. I just ordered one thread gloss tin, and Paige sent such a cute quilt pattern too. Such a great small business!
