This will be your best kept secret for a fluffy and dense pompom (after your Pom Maker!).
It’s the ultimate solution for tying your pompoms super tight & strong.
This is a thin but very strong linen thread which is dipped in beeswax and starch which create friction so your knots will not easily loosen.
Trust us, no more loose pompoms! We’re such a big fan of this we shared a detailed post on our blog. See How To Tie Your Pompom – The Ultimate Guide.
Made by Fil Au Chinois, a French company that has been making quality waxed linen threads since 1847.

Niki Jacobs –
I have been using Fil au Chinois for years and would not use any other thread when it comes to making pompoms. The thread holds the pompom together tightly and does not slip or loosen. I have made Christmas trees using it and the pompoms are still tight 2 years later.
feels more like wire than thread but is pliable.
Don’t tell my boss but while I was having a quiet moment at work, I googled “best thread for tying pom poms” because I always break the thread while tying and get upset and found Pom Maker’s site with this thread on it. It’s really the best thing as it’s so strong and kind of holds the knot tight while you get it tied up! Love it!! Lots of love from Australia
