The assembly of swimming shorts and other swim garments demands that the sewing threads used deliver softness, strength and stretch in the seams.
Coats has a wide range of sewing threads that can be used in various combinations to deliver these properties and also excellent on machine performance.
Alternative thread types may be used depending on required final quality. The thread size will determine the choice of needle size.
The sewing thread recommendations laid out here 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.
