Yellow thread that doesn't stain?

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to make a wallet lately, and I've used yellow threads for hand stitching, my issue is that with waxed threads, especially the bright colored ones stain with the dirt from our hands overtime. I think that the cause of this is the wax on the thread that makes it such a dust magnet.

Is there any thread that you recommend that doesn't stain? Or am I just wrong?

You can try pulling the thread between a folded piece of paper. That might help by kind of polishing the wax / getting the extra wax off. And might not help at all, but it won't cost much to try and see if helps.
