Purchase: I wanted to try out some braiding thread but didn't want to buy a big spool until I either knew I liked it, or didn't want to use it again. Victoria Feeds - The Horse & Hound in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada sells small (almost sample sized) packages of thread by J. Wenzel's for around $3.00 each. I picked one up in dark brown (the closest match to my horses colour).

Likes: I like that I was able to try out the braiding thread without buying a big spool. The 15m batch of thread comes on a little piece of cardboard, and includes a metal needle. Not a bad deal, as far as I'm concerned. I found that after braiding my mares mane and tail, there was some thread left over for touch-ups if needed (though with how tough this thread seems, I doubt it would break). It produced tight knots that didn't slip out.

Dislikes: I found that this thread was a lot harder on my fingers for braiding than yarn (which I used to use). Because of the tension I put on the braids, my fingers were quite sore afterwards from pulling on the thread.

Quality: 15m of British-manufactured J. Wenzel's Needles and Thread braiding thread. Excellent quality. Near impossible to break. Comes in several colours, and includes a needle.

Summary: Now that I know I like braiding thread (as opposed to yarn, for example) I'll buy a bigger spool of it. This package of thread would be great for a ring-side tack box, where you don't want it cluttered, but you might need a few braiding supplies in there for a touch-up. This little package takes up almost no room (just be sure to shield the needles point so that you don't get stuck by it when you're reaching in!).
