Thread for upholstery

 Upholstery thread is necessary for stitching heavy materials while making furniture. Its composition may include natural and synthetic fibers, which depend on the properties and range of weights. Let's understand this consumable's features and the brands on the market.

What products are upholstery threads used for?

Upholstery sewing machine threads are used for stressed seams and heavy-weight fabrics such as furnishing textiles, leather, and canvas. Their fibers are considerably thicker than those of standard polyester yarns and less prone to tearing. They are more durable than all-purpose ones. So when it comes to extra strength, you should use consumables with nylon.

What is the peculiarity of upholstery sewing threads?

The choice of thread directly depends on the fabric you will stitch.

  • Nylon is most suitable for canvas. Such threads are often confused with fishing lines, which makes the stitch less noticeable.
  • Olefin fibers are tough, hard-wearing, colorfast, and stain resistant. Among all upholstery sewing threads, they are the lightest and tend to dry out quickly, wicking sweat and water from the textile.
  • Cotton is a natural material and gives a soft look to the seams. The thick and waxy type of cotton thread is used in hand-quilting. It is easily dyed but is prone to tearing and is not used without preshrunk.
  • Silk fibers are delicate and an integral part of the overall design for the upholstered piece. These threads are very elastic and tear much less often than polyester.
  • Polyester provides excellent durability, gives seams a smooth look, and does not shrink when washed. Such threads are usually used for sewing jeans.

Good upholstery is the key to the success of the product. The quality of the connection of parts, the accuracy, and the appearance of the product depends on the consumables. Therefore, it is worth paying particular attention to the fibers' composition and the material you are going to process.

This was a very good buy. Ideal for any fabric as it’s strong and doesn’t break easily. My new sewing machine likes it.
