Thread Weight Explained

  • Tex
  • Denier

  • Weight

Bob Purcell (Chief Threadologist of Superior Threads) discusses the weight system used for thread. Tex, Denier, #, Composition, and Thread Weight are all used to describe the thickness of a fiber. If you want a thread to blend, choose a fine thread. If you want a thread to show, choose a medium-heavy thread.
