Apparel Industrial Threads
Many different types of threads are available that can be used in apparel and clothing.
- OMNI - OMNI is the cleaner, brighter, and stronger alternative to other poly-wrapped poly core threads available. OMNI has been designed for multiple sewing/serging purposes. The multi-filament polyester core gives OMNI superior strength while the wrapped poly allows this thread to “grab” the fabric and create smooth, pucker-free seams. Ideal seams will lie flat throughout the garment, providing the garment with a better fit. OMNI is used for tailored clothing applications such as shirts, suits, neckties, dresses, jackets, and much more. Not only is OMNI a popular garment construction thread used to sew fabric together (sewing a standard lock stitch), it is also very popular in overlock and cover stitch applications. OMNI can also be used for light-weight Denim sewing and embellishment. How munch more industrial can you get when it comes to threads than with industrial threads for jeans...
- Polyarn - Replace “woollie-like” nylon products with a heat resistant and colorfast woollie polyester. Polyarn is an exciting new texturized (DTY) thread designed for sewing on fleece, knits, and stretch fabrics. Polyarn has the bulk, elasticity, and flexibility popularized by “woollie-type” nylon, but has several important added features.
Polyarn is colorfast and can be laundered commercially without fading.
Polyarn is resistant to chlorine which makes it the best choice for children’s clothing as well as swimming and active wear. The additional concern of “yellowing” associated with weathering and aging in nylon products is also avoided.
Polyarn has a higher temperature resistance than nylon products. Iron safe on medium settings.
Polyarn has a wide range of uses, including hem sewing and decorative stitches.
- ProLock- ProLock is an exciting new texturized (DTY) thread designed for sewing on fleece, knits, and stretch fabrics. Available in 60 colors, ProLock is colorfast and can be commercially laundered without risk of fading. With the bulk, elasticity, and flexibility popularized by "woollie-like" nylon threads, ProLock has all three traits plus the addition of a higher heat-resistance.
Bonded Nylon Threads
Bonded Nylon thread is great for automotive interiors, upholstery, leather, heavy fabrics and more where a very strong thread is needed. Bonded nylon is the go-to thread in the upholstery industry. Definitely industrial thread material.
Our bonded nylon thread is made of nylon 66, which is stronger and more durable than the regular nylon or nylon 6. Nylon 66 also has a higher melting point than standard nylon 6 and certain polyesters. The bonded coating holds up well against abrasion and wear-and-tear.
