    Default Online source for waxed braiding thread?

    Anyone know an online source to order waxed braiding thread?? Dover has plain braiding thread but I like waxed better and am running out. No convenient tack shops nearby so would like to order online.

    Also check local Upholstery Suppliers. You can often get much better quality and thicker (for those thick manes) from them.

    I am a bead embroidery hobbyist...and use the waxed thread found in the "bead" aisle at the local Walmart. Cheap and works great! It comes in spools - in a baggie. I believe it's 80 to 100 yards per spool and runs $2.

    Thanks also for the suggestions re Walmart. I didi look at Walmart the other day but clearly didn't spend enough time in the bead aisle. :-)
