pun Threads – are made from staple fibers that are spun into single yarns and then two or more of these yarns are plied to make a sewing thread. Spun threads have a fibrous surface giving them a soft hand and good lubricity characteristics. Spun threads are used in everything from women’s lingerie to heavy leather gloves. A&E Brands include: Anecot®, Anecot Plus®, Endurance®, Excell®, Flame-Out® SP, Kevlar®, Nomex® & Perma Spun®.
Core Threads – are made by spinning a staple wrapper of cotton or polyester around a continuous filament of polyester fibers. Afterwards, two or more of these single yarns are twisted together to form the thread. Core threads have a fibrous surface giving them good lubricity characteristics and also a continuous filament core that contributes to high strength and durability. When wrapped with a cotton wrap, core threads have very good needle heat resistance. When wrapped with a polyester wrap, core threads have excellent chemical resistance and colorfastness. Core threads are used in everything from fine blouses to heavy coveralls and overalls. A&E Brands include: Perma Core®, Perma Core® Ultimate, D-Core®, and Design-A-Core™.
Textured Threads – are made from continuous filaments of polyester or nylon that have been textured and then heat set to insure proper bulk-retention. Textured threads are ideal for overedge, chainstitch, and coverstitch operations offering a soft seam and good seam elasticity and coverage. Textured threads are generally less expensive than other thread constructions of the same size. A&E Brands include: Wildcat Plus®, Best Stretch®, IntimaSoft®, and Tex Kool®.
Air Entangled Threads – are made from continuous filaments of polyester that are entangled as they pass through a high pressure air jet. This yarn is then twisted, dyed, and wound on cones with lubricant. Air entangled threads are used in everything from quilting mattresses to sewing heavy denim jeans. A&E Brands include: Magic®, Magic HP® , Signature®, and Signature® Plus.
Monofilament Threads – are made from single continuous filaments of nylon that resemble fishing line. Monofilament threads are translucent and blend in with many colors. Because it has a tendency to be stiffer than other filament products, monofilament threads are not recommended for seams that may lay adjacent to the skin. Monofilament threads are used in quilting operations on quilts and bedspreads, as well as blindstitch operations on drapery and apparel. A&E Brand include: Clearlon®.
Twisted Multifilament Threads – are made from continuous filaments of polyester or nylon that are twisted together into a cohesive bundle and then plied to make the thread. They are then dyed, stretched, and heat set to achieve the desired physical characteristics. Twisted Multifilament threads are available either soft or with an additional bond for better ply security and abrasion resistance. They are exceptionally strong for their size and have excellent abrasion resistance and durability. These threads are used for seaming everything from boat sails to automobile upholstery. A&E Brands include: Anefil® and Anefil® DRY. This construction is also used in the manufacturing of RA embroidery brands including Super Brite® Polyester, Super Strength® Rayon, and Twister Tweed®.
Monocord Threads – are made from continuous filaments of polyester or nylon that have been bonded together. They have very little twist so that they look like a single cord of yarn. Because of the way these threads are made, they appear to be flat and ribbon-like, which provides a low-seam profile and therefore a high degree of resistance to abrasion. Monocord threads are exceptionally strong for their size and are used in the manufacturing of furniture, shoes, and other heavy duty applications. A&E Brands include: Anecord®, Anequilt® , Teryl B®, and Signature® Plus.
