ELMODA - SAK 100% COTTON GLAZE

SAK Cotton has a longer staple length and is a superior grade of cotton as compared to CP cotton. SAK cotton is stronger and recommended as a replacement for high tenacity spun polyester thread when used for garment dyeing. SAK cotton is more expensive than CP cotton threads. The Glace finish protects the thread while providing better ply security and abrasion resistance.
