Superior's Serger Threads
There are many different types of threads which can be used in the needles and loopers of a serger. A quality corespun polyester thread is the go-to fiber choice for clothing construction while a textured polyester thread is favored for rolled hems. No matter what project you are sewing on your serger, we'll have the thread to match your application.
Our serger threads:
40 wt. 2-ply (Tex 30) corespun (poly-wrapped poly core) thread. Specifically designed for serging. Sergin' General is the cleanest serger thread available. With excellent strength and elongation, you will experience smoother stitches with less puckering when sewing. Available in 50 solid colors that have been specifically chosen for their blending tone and ability to work with many different fabric colors. Enjoy Superior confidence when sewing with Sergin' General on all your serger projects.
Tex 26 texturized polyester thread. Designed specifically for serger and overlock machines. Polyarn is a premium “woollie-like” texturized polyester thread. Polyarn has excellent elasticity, recovery, and flexibility, which makes Polyarn the top choice for garment construction when sewing on a serger. Because Polyarn is 100% polyester, it has a higher heat resistance than woollie nylon threads. These beautiful colors are colorfast and can be commercially laundered without risk of fading. With its excellent coverage, Polyarn can be used for simple hems or fancy stitching.
Tex 35 texturized polyester thread. Designed specifically for serger and overlock machines. ProLock is a new texturized polyester thread (DTY) designed for serging 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 these traits plus the addition of higher heat-resistance.
What is the difference between Polyarn and ProLock?
Polyarn is the recommended thread when stretch is critical. It has 50% more stretch than ProLock and is more widely-used in stretchy apparel fabrics such as swimsuits and leotards. ProLock is stronger and has better coverage. However, it does not have better stretch than Polyarn. ProLock is widely-used for serging when stretch isn't critical.
