Thread is a key component of many items that we use daily. From apparel that we wear, to the furniture we sit on, thread is all around us. It is even part of the tea bag used at lunch. Sewing threads are generally used to assemble sewn products together, and the quality of the seam is dependent on the quality of the sewing thread used.
Remember: Thread only makes up a small percent of the cost of the sewn product, but shares 50% of the responsibility of the seam.
Fibers used to make industrial sewing threads come from two major sources:
Natural Fibers-Come from plants or animals and are spun or twisted into yarns. Cotton is the most common natural fiber used to make thread. Other natural fibers include rayon, Lyocel®, silk, wool, jute, ramie, hemp, and linen. Natural fibers are generally not as uniform as synthetic fibers and are affected by climatic changes. We select our cotton fibers from the best available crops, classifying them depending on the geographic location, climate, plant seed type, and the cotton grower’s reputation. The two classes of cotton fibers that we use include SAK (or Supima) cotton and CP (or Peeler) cotton. SAK is generally a higher quality cotton that produces stronger spun cotton threads than CP fibers.
