Thread Heaven is the only product created specifically to treat thread Many products have been adapted from their intended uses to condition thread and make it easier to work with, but Thread Heaven Thread Conditioner and Protectant was conceived and developed specifically to make thread more manageable, eliminate the negative side effects of wax porducts, 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 extends the lifetime of thread and finished product Thread Heaven extends the lifetime of your projects two ways: First by cutting down the stress and drag on your thread while you are making the piece, and second, by leaving an invisable, but virtually impenetrable coating that protects against environmental hazards like UV rays, mold and mildew.
Unlike wax, Thread Heaven does not melt or freeze. 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 temperature above 600 degrees, Thread Heaven simply evaporates.
Thread Heaven protects against UV rays, mold or mildew. A coating of Thread Heaven actually deflects UV rays, unlike wax coatings which melt or crumble away with repeated exposure. This means that dyes that would normally fade or take on a yellow, green, or bluish cast from exposure to sunlight are uneffected.Thread colors remain bright and true for many more years than waxed or untreated threads. Additionally, the Thread Heaven coating provides a moisture barrier which stops the growth of mold and mildew.
Thread Heaven is the only product that uses static electricity to reduce tangling and knotting. This characteristic is absolutely unique to Thread Heaven and is the main reason it works so much better than any other product!
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 accidently 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 is both acid free and non-toxic. None of the chemicals used to produce Thread Heaven are acidic or toxic. The PH of Thread Heaven is 7. 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 (see Uses Static.....above) they never actually touch, even when multiple passes are required! Thread Heaven can be laundered and ironed without staining or marking thread or fabric. Because Thread Heaven is a non-reactive (inert) compund, it will not be effected by detergent, fabric softener, or even bleach. Threads that have been well treated with Thread Heaven will “bleed” much less onto other threads and fabric. And because it doesn’t melt, Thread heaven can be washed in hot water, dried in the dryer, and ironed. Thread Heaven has been extensively tested for use on all types of thread or fabric. The Thread Heaven formula was extensively tested during its development, and reworked where necessary, to assure that only desirable characteristics were retained, and that it acheived its intended purpose. Independent consumer labs have tested Thread Heaven as well, and we continue to test and re-evaluate the results as new uses for Thread heaven are found. Thread Heaven was designed for both machine and hand use. Thread Heaven is designed for machine as well as hand sewing. It markedly reduces thread breakage and skipped stitches when sewing with metallic, silk, and rayon threads, and when sewing at high speeds, like machine embroidery. Thread Heaven will never “gum up” machine parts, in fact, because of its lubricating properties, it is actually good for them.
CAUTION: Using Thread Heaven should never be considered a subsitute for regularly cleaning and lubricating your machine! Visit our How to Use page for more information on using Thread Heaven with your sewing machine. Unlike wax, Thread Heaven will not break down. Thread Heaven will never become flaky or crumbly due to age as waxes do. Occasionally, with Thread Heaven that has been extensively used, small bits will adhere to the thread along with the coating because small amounts of body oil have accumlated preventing the surface from “healing”. This is easily remedied by removing Thread Heaven from its container and turning it over to expose a new surface. Visit our How to Use page for more about keeping Thread heaven in prime shape. By reducing friction, Thread Heaven reduces hand and wrist fatigue. Unlike sticky wax coatings, the Thread Heaven coating is extremely smooth and slick. The thread moves through the works with much less drag than even uncoated thread, so the needle can be held with a much looser grip.... less pinching means more stitching before your hand starts to tire and cramp. Also, when you tightly pinch the needle, the stress is transferred to your wrist, so a nice loose hold on the needle reduces wrist fatigue as well. Thread Heaven is NOT a petroleum product. Thread Heaven is a synthetic chemical compound. It is not a petroleum product, nor does it use any petroleum products in its formulation. It is catagorized, by the chemical industry, as a synthetic silastic polymer. Thread Heaven is the best product available for reducing tangling and fraying. As the chart shows, all the products we’ve compared help to reduce thread tangling, but Thread Heaven does it better and longer, and with many additional benefits, and none of the drawbacks of the other products!
