Dual Duty Supercotton

Specially engineered for post-dyed cotton garments, dyes as well as cotton with the strength of polyester
Coats Dual Duty Supercotton is a premium quality corespun sewing thread ideal for use in the manufacture of post dyed cotton garments.

Post dyed cotton garments normally require a 100% cotton sewing thread, but cotton threads have distinct drawbacks compared to corespun threads. These disadvantages include strength, elongation, shrinkage, sewing performance and abrasion resistance.

Dual Duty Supercotton sewing thread is ideal for all 100% cotton post dyed garments. It is a highly engineered hybrid sewing thread designed to give you all the benefits of corespun threads combined with the suitability of use in making post dyed garments. The polyester filament core provides excellent strength and durability, while the higher percentage of long staple cotton wrap ensures optimal dye uptake and “hides” the polyester filament to avoid speckling effect in the sewn seam.

It is an ideal choice for post dyed garments where the garment’s final colour is relatively known before the dyeing process. It has a unique corespun construction that gives an enhanced sewing performance and abrasion resistance, even compared to “premium” quality 100% cotton threads.
