Description: 3 Ply twisted thread made from 35% cotton cover and 65% polyester. It consists of a filament core of polyester with a cover of cotton.
Features: The cotton protects the poly core from the weakening effects of needle heat while supplying the high level strength characteristics of a synthetic. There is no fusing, even at high machine speeds. It has excellent durability to repeated launderings, low shrinkage, and excellent abrasion resistance. The cotton retains the lubricant better than a polyester would without it, and the continuous filament core provides excellent loop forming characteristics through the needle, which is important when sewing heavy fabrics, as it helps prevent skip stitching.
