Features of Nylon Thread for Leather
Nylon thread is one of the strongest synthetic threads in use today. It has a high strength-to-size ratio in comparison to polyester sewing thread and is also known for its flexibility and stretch.
The high tensile strength of nylon sewing thread makes it ideal for heavy fabrics used in home décor. The added elasticity is also ideal for upholstery applications.
While nylon thread for sewing machine is a great general-purpose thread, we do not recommend it for outdoor applications. Nylon sewing threads do not have the UV resistance of polyester thread and will not last as long outside.
