These funny little lumps are hand wax for waxing inseaming threads. They make the thread very sticky so each stitch will hold. Making hand wax is a messy job and I am VERY happy to say that I’ve found a source for quality hand wax and I’m now selling it.
Sorrell Notions and Findings/hand wax
I'm a custom cowboy boot maker. I own a business, Sorrell Custom Boots, and I create bespoke cowboy boots using vintage machinery and hand tools. I also own www.sorrellnotionsandfindings.com, a company that specializes in tools, supplies, and leather for the boot and shoe making trade.
