Sports Balls

From hand made cricket balls to machine manufactured footballs, we provide a diverse selection of sewing threads that can be customised to meet manufacturer requirements.

For traditionally hand made cricket balls, we recommend linen, a natural fibre that has a natural appearance, does not melt and has virtually no elasticity.

For more information, check out our recommendations below.
