What are the characteristics of staple spun polyester?
Abrasion resistance: The abrasion resistance of polyester is second only to nylon and ranks second among synthetic fibers.
Water absorption: polyester has low water absorption and moisture regain and good insulation performance, but due to low water absorption, static electricity generated by friction is large, and dyeing performance is poor.
Cotton Vs. Polyester Thread
There are key differences between cotton thread and polyester thread. Cotton thread is a little bit stronger than polyester thread and a lot softer. This makes it ideal for visible seams in your projects. The lack of stretch in cotton thread also makes it ideal for quilting projects because they won’t lose their shape. Polyester thread has a little bit of stretch to it, so anything you are sewing to wear should be made with polyester or nylon thread.
Mercerized Cotton Thread – 100% cotton thread that is still silky smooth. Mercerized cotton or Egyptian cotton goes through a specialized process that makes natural fibers more luminous and stronger. This thread is ideal for all sewing projects because it is strong and easy to work with.
100% Cotton Silk-Finish – ideal for sewing cotton and especially piecing and quilting since it is high strength and non-shrink; has a natural shine and is extremely soft
Fine Machine Embroidery Thread – perfect for any embroidery project, on batiste, tulle, linen, cotton, toweling, and more.
Spun Polyester Thread – makes smooth seams, and can be used on cotton, synthetics, mixed textiles, silk, or linen
PolySheen Polyester Thread – ideal for quilting since it is stronger than rayon
Metallic Thread – perfect for machine or hand embroidery, adds a metallic glow
Overlock Thread – this thread is best for sergers since it resists breakage and provides consistent tension
