To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I chose this particular 8 pack for a project I was doing with my kids. We made leather journals. It came with 8 colors, all earth tones, and a tube of sharp and blunt needles. It is definitely a bargain for all you get. The threads are strong and slide smoothly without catching. The needles pushed through the tough leather covers and paper. I would recommend the thread and needles for any project needing a strong, smooth, waxed thread. The bonus of the needle collection was great, too!
Excellent product. I use to bind journals, has the right amount of wax, colors are beautiful, came with a great set of needles sharp and blunt. I will absolutely buy this waxed leather thread kit again! Cant beat the price! Love it! I have used other brands and this hands down beats all others I have.
It has worked for project number 1 so far so let's see how it works for project number 2 and so on.
I unsed this to repair the stitching that broke at the toe of my moccasins and had started to unwind. There was a thread that matched the color almost perfectly and the thickness and the texture of the thread was perfect. I did find that a regular sewing needle was better for fitting into the holes of the moccasins than the ones that came with the kit, but I'm sure they will be useful latter.
Needle selection was broad and I probably will not use many of the larger ones but who knows. Everything works well. Thread seems good quality and waxed and it looks good and seems sturdy and long lasting in my saddle stitches. I like all of it and would recommend it to other users, especially folks just starting out with stitching leather.
