We supply a vast range of polished threads so please get in touch to find out more.
Our polished thread is a cotton wrapped polyester corespun with a glace finish. This exceptional thread combines the sewing performance of cotton with the superior strength and elongation characteristics of continuous filament polyester. The cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat even from your most demanding applications. The glace finish gives the thread its lustrous effect and enhanced abrasion resistance.
The cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat generated during high speed sewing, so it preserves the threads strength. In wet weather, the cotton wrap absorbs water and swells to fill the needle holes. This prevents water leaking through the seams, making our polished threads ideal for a range of outdoor applications.
Its controlled stretch characteristics gives you excellent sewability, with tight, firm stitches on a variety of leather surfaces.
