Preferred label
dressed thread
vokset tråd
Note (en)
Thread has been protected with a coating of a substance such as wax or a size to stop it fraying and twisting as it is used. When wax was used, it often oxidises to an orangey-brown colour.
Note (nb)
Tråden kan være blitt beskyttet med voks for å hindre at den flosser og tvinner seg under hefting. Voksen kan ofte oksidere til oransje-brun farge.
