What is denim?
First of all, we need to understand the characteristics of denim. Denim is a warp twill fabric. It is generally composed of cotton threads with high special numbers, that is, relatively thick, so it is relatively rough and wear-resistant, and has a long service life, and the characteristics of the fabric determine.
The sewing thread used for denim
The sewing thread used for denim needs high strength and wear resistance. Poor quality sewing thread often leads to sewing thread breakage of denim clothing after several pieces of washing, which affects the appearance and reduces the overall clothing texture, and effect the life of denim.
Special production process
The second thing to consider is the special production process of denim clothes. After the denim clothes are sewn, they generally need to go through the process of washing, and the denim clothes are polished with pumice or chemicals to achieve a certain fading effect and a sense of staleness. The ever-changing styles of denim clothing have high requirements on the washing performance of the sewing thread. After washing, the high-quality sewing thread can effectively prevent the stitches from fluffing or even being damaged and ensure the aesthetics and quality of the denim clothing. Wearing comfort.
Cotton-coated polyester core-spun sewing thread
Taking these two points into consideration, a cotton-coated polyester core-spun sewing thread is recommended. The surface of the core-spun sewing thread is soft natural cotton yarn, which can take into account the ductility and wearing comfort, and the inner is high-strength filament polyester, which has strong toughness Durability, and abrasion resistance, and washing characteristics are quite outstanding, it can be said to be an ideal material for sewing denim.
In addition to considering the strength of the sewing thread, uniformity is also very important. The routing of denim clothes often takes into account the role of decoration. Therefore, the sewing thread should also be smooth and uniform in thickness, so that the stitches of the sewing thread will be flat and beautiful. A detail often determines the texture of denim. High-end brand denim pays great attention to the beauty of the thread. Therefore, when choosing sewing threads, it is necessary to choose sewing threads with stable quality control, which can effectively avoid problems such as thick knots.
Corespun threads sometimes referred “score” or “polycore” or “cotton core”, are made by wrapping a staple polyester or cotton wrapper around a continuous filament bundle of polyester fibers during spinning, and then plying these yarns into a sewing thread. The continuous filament polyester core makes up approximately 60% of the thread construction.
Pros of Core-spun Threads
Higher strength per size (higher tenacity)
Greater uniformity in size, strength, and other physical characteristics•
A higher initial modulus or resistance to stretching contributes to better loop formation and reduced seam puckering.
