Thread Conditioning Hints

Thread Heaven is a chemical compound that gives thread a static charge, so that the tail and the working thread repel each other and cut down the chance of tangling. Not all beading instructions specify the product to use as a preferred thread conditioner, which to the majority of beaders can cause a great deal of confusion.

Bees wax and Thread Heaven are two different thread treatments that are not usually interchangable. Beeswax is used for projects that require the stickiness or tackiness of the wax to add some body or rigidity to the beadwork. In other words, use beeswax when a project needs stiffness (for example a basket) or strong tension to hold the shape (like a spiral rope) or when using doubled thread.
