Types of sewing thread

Good heat resistance, poor elasticity, abrasion resistance, moisture resistance and anti-bacterial ability, suitable for high-speed sewing and durable pressing. The most used is long-staple pure cotton thread, which is made of long-staple cotton through combing, singeing, mercerizing, and high-density twisting, so the tensile force is better than ordinary combed cotton. It is often used for sewing pure cotton clothing and other pure cotton fabrics.

4. Polyester/cotton sewing thread
Made of 65% polyester staple fiber and 35% cotton fiber blended, the thread has high strength, good abrasion resistance, low shrinkage, good flexibility and elasticity, and good heat resistance. Can sew all kinds of clothes.
