We offer a range of sewing threads which enhance the softness properties of the seams, resulting in more comfortable garments.
For the overlock loopers, if finer seams are required, it may be possible to use Epic Tex 18 or Gramax Tex 18.
Approximate thread consumption for men's pyjamas is 190 metres and men's dressing gowns is 250 metres. Depending on required final quality, alternative thread types may be used. Thread size will determine needle size.
For more information, check out our recommendations below.
Where two Tex sizes of thread have been suggested the choice will be determined by the fabric weight, the construction of the load bearing seams and the stitch definition required (topstitching).
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.
