Merchant and Mills Pure Beeswax
Formed in 2010, Merchant & Mills elevated sewing to its proper place in the creative world, respecting the craftsmanship it entails. They produce a range of superb sewing notions in stark, utilitarian packaging with a philosophy of: Buy once - quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten.
Pure beeswax potted with a lid. Beeswax is traditionally used by tailors to strengthen thread when hand sewing buttonholes. Keep it by the sewing machine and pull your thread across it a couple of times before snipping off the thread end and it will be as easy as pie to get the stiff neat end through the machine needle.
