Thread Heaven Thread Conditioner and Protectant was conceived and developed specifically to make thread more manageable, eliminate the negative side effects of wax products, AND extend the lifetime of the finished work many years longer than untreated or wax treated threads. Thread heaven is absolutely unique, it is guaranteed to work, and it is the only thread conditioner, ever, to be patented. Thread Heaven is a synthetic chemical compound that will not freeze or melt like waxes do. Thread Heaven can be left in the sun and needlework made with Thread Heaven treated thread can be dried in a dryer and ironed without fear that the coating will melt and bleed onto the fabric. At temperatures above 600 degrees, Thread Heaven simply evaporates.
Thread Heaven extends the lifetime of your projects in two ways:
- First by cutting down the stress and drag on your thread while you are making the piece; and
- Second, by leaving an invisible, but virtually impenetrable coating that protects against environmental hazards like UV rays, mold and mildew.
Thread Heaven is the only product that uses static electricity to reduce tangling and knotting. When a Thread Heaven treated thread is quickly pulled between your thumb and finger, the friction causes a slight charge of static electricity to occur along the shaft.When the needle is threaded, the main thread and the tail, having a similar charge, are forced apart making it very difficult for them to get tangled. Even if you do accidentally pass your needle through a loop and get a knot, you will find it almost literally unties itself, especially if you give the thread a good shake, because the threads are trying very hard to get away from each other!
Thread Heaven reduces the friction known as thread drag.Two to three times more damage is done to thread during the process of making a piece than it will encounter during the rest of its entire lifetime, whether from wear, laundering, or environmental conditions. The damage occurs from the continual pulling of the thread in and out of the work.Waxes produce a sticky coating which means more force is required to pull the thread, causing additional stress on the fibers. This is really compounded when more than one thread pass is required and the thread is pulled “sticky against sticky”! Thread Heaven produces a very smooth,slick coating which actually reduces the stress, and because the threads repell each other they never actually touch, even when multiple passes are required!
