Whether it's wrinkle resistant, easy care or casual washed shirts, we offer a comprehensive range of sewing threads to fit any budget.
Children's shirts generally require 75 metres of thread. Although two Tex sizes have been suggested the final decision will be based upon the fabric weight, the construction of the load bearing seams and the stitch definition required (topstitching).
It’s important to remember the size of your thread will determine the size of the needle needed for sewing. To fit the demands of the final quality alternative thread types may be used.
For more information, check out our recommendations below.
The sewing thread recommendations laid out above are intended as a guide to aid the construction of garments with good quality seams. As garments of the same generic type differ in terms of fabric substrate and construction, and both making up methods and post make up processing can greatly vary, these recommendations should be viewed as a good starting point for thread selection.
Garment specific recommendations for thread and needle selection as well as accurate thread consumption figures and onsite technical support can be obtained by contacting your local Coats' office.
These recommendations and consumption figures are intended as a guide only and are given in good faith but without warranty or liability on the company or its employees.
