Poly/Poly VS Polyester Cotton Core Spun Thread
The Poly wrapper contributes to :
- Superior color fastness, chemical, and abrasion resistance
- Higher strength than cotton-wrapped core spun threads
- Superior “union dyeing” because of the one-step dyeing process
The Cotton wrapper contributes to :
- Superior needle heat resistance
- A “wash-down” stitch appearance
What are the benefits of using core-spun sewing thread on denim?
- 40 to 50% stronger than spun polyester threads the same size
- Superior sewability on both manual and automatic machines with minimum interruptions – fewer restitched seams.
- Helps to Minimize Open-Seams and Seam Failure
- Allows the use of smaller diameter thread to minimize Seam Puckering or Needle cutting
- Helps to minimize broken and cut stitches after finishing.
Cost Vs Performance
Core-spun polyester threads are more expensive than spun polyester threads.
The usage of these yarns can increase the cost of production. However, using spun polyester yarns can increase the possibility of broken stitches and rejected garments or needing repairs.
A & E mentions that certain manufacturers have tried to use both Core Spun and Spun Poly to achieve a balance between costs and performance.
Since overedge seams consume the most thread, they will use spun polyester on these operations while continuing to use core-spun threads on all topstitching and stress seam operations.
