Polyester thread

(1 customer review)

A polyester thread is a synthetic all-purpose thread. It is a good choice for most machine and hand sewing projects. Polyester thread works well with stretchy fabrics as it has much given to it. Because of the wax or silicone finish that often covers this thread, it slips through the fabric easily. An invisible polyester thread is also available and is an ideal choice for some projects.

Polyester is made to be stronger than most natural threads. It is important to avoid using polyester thread with natural fabric. Over time, the stronger polyester thread can break down the weaker cotton fiber of the fabric.

There are a number of other advantages to a polyester thread:

  • Durable: Designed for heavy-duty use
  • Strong: More tensile strength than rayon or cotton
  • Colorfast: Polyester fibers hold color pigment longer and through more washes
  • Retains shape: It has much given to it while still retaining its original shape
  • Variety of finishes: Matte finish, or medium to high-sheen finishes
  • Longer lasting: Not significantly affected by moisture, rot, mildew, or most insects
