Hello All, I am looking for a ball of hand sewing wax. Preferably made from rosin, pitch and beeswax. Can't seem to find a source anywhere. If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Scott Sheets

Why not make your own? Not diffivult and you can tweak proportions to suit your preference and climate.

I'm having a hard time finding the pine pitch. The rosin and beeswax are no problem...

Pine pitch is a problem. I understand all production is now in China and is not the same. I use just wax and rosin for general sewing. I don't yet do shoes or histotical items so this does me.

How it has been explained to me is that rosin is cooked pitch. If you have pitch you need to cook it so that it turns into rosin. Once you have rosin you mix it with the wax. So you do not need both pitch and rosin, they are basicly the same.
