Polyester Cotton Thread

Polyester Cotton Thread

Somac Polyester Cotton is a multi-purpose thread made from a high tenacity polyester core with a cotton cover. This thread combines the sewing and heat dissipation properties of cotton with the superior strength of polyester. A glace (satin) finish can be applied to the thread which further enhances the performance in heavy duty sewing applications.
