Sewing thread

All sewing threads begin as simple yarns. Twisting together short fibers or continuous filaments produces these yarns. Two or more yarns are combined to make the thread. There are various factors depending on general and specific end uses, which when carefully analyzed can help in the better selection of appropriate thread for sewing apparel to achieve optimum performance.
