These waxed braids have just the right amount of special waxed coating, enabling easy hand-plaiting and provides an ideal surface for slipknots such as in neckwear. Polyester braided thread can be melted, weaved or plaited to form thicker braids. Use Zircon & SSS waxed polyester braid with confidence to create quality hand-made or machine-made products. In New Zealand we have many manufacturers who use polyester braided thread for greenstone jade [Pounamu] and bone carving souvenir necklaces because of it's strength, feel against the skin and vibrant colour range as shown below. Also available in five thicknesses, as above in the stitch comparison illustration.
