Of course we all know that thread is an important tool for sewing, but did you know that 100% cotton thread can have cosmetic uses? As I was surfing the web the other night I came across this article that discussed the increased popularity in the ancient art of threading. Intrigued, I searched around to find out more information and discovered that the concept is simple, thin cotton threads are twisted around a follicle and then pulled, removing the unwanted hair – similar to tweezing. If you’re interested in seeing threading in action, be sure to check out this video (the ‘action’ starts at 2:00), of course, if you’re really interested in trying it out for yourself, this tutorial on eHow will teach you how. Personally, I’m going to stick with keeping my thread in my machine.
