Coats Astra is a best-in-class 100% staple spun polyester (SSP) sewing thread with significantly higher sewing performance when compared with regular SSP threads.

This reduces machine downtime and increases productivity giving you a consistent sewing performance. This makes Astra the thread of choice for sewers where cost matters.

Astra creates durable, long-lasting seams which look good throughout the sewn product lifetime. It has low fault levels and is a dependable sewing thread that we supply globally. It also has high levels of colour fastness.

Our global approach is to manage and minimise the impact on the environmental. Astra is certified to Öko-Tex Standard 100, class I, the most stringent class covering textile items for babies and toddlers, and meets Coats restricted substance list.
