I think that many of us pull thread through wax in order to settle the thread fibres. However, I read in a book by Keith Julier that another method is to '....... run the thread through fingers made sticky by PVA glue'. It doesn't say whether to let it then dry before using, but I think that things could get messy if you pull it through pulley blocks etc when wet. I don't doubt what Keith is saying, but does anyone have any experience of this method? Thanks.
