Are you starting to get the hint that we kind of love polyester thread? Picking up where we left off, we have 5 more benefits of using a quality polyester.
6. Easily Washed
-Polyester is heat resistant (dryer and iron save), with a melting temperature of about 480º F (in comparison, nylon starts to yellow at 350º F and melts at about 415º F). Polyester is colorfast, resistant to chemicals, and can be washed or dry-cleaned with most common cleaning detergents.
7. Mildew Resistant
8. Retains heat-set pleats and creases
-Lint-free poly thread can make very smooth seams. There is one caution: when you iron the seams, make sure your iron is on the medium setting for synthetics and not on the high setting for cotton. Although polyester is heat resistant, it is not as heat resistant as cotton and a high-heat iron can melt it. As long as you aren’t leaving a hot iron on a polyester thread for too long, you should be just fine.
9. Abrasion Resistant
10. Quick drying
-Absorbs very little moisture.
