100% Beeswax Thread Gem: Pure Beeswax Thread Conditioner by Posey Handmade. Made from 100% pure beeswax, these cute little gems will help keep your hand-stitching thread from tangling and help your thread to glide through the material easier. These gems are approximately .5 ounces each and 1.25″ x 1″. Each gem comes in a little zip lock baggie for safekeeping as well as a handy metal tin. 100% pure beeswax may discolour light coloured fabrics and thread. Be sure to run thread through your fingers to remove excess wax before stitching to reduce any potential discolouration.
