NYLSTRETCH - TEXTURED STRETCH 100% NYLON

Textured Threads - are made from continuous filaments of nylon that have been textured and then heat set to insure proper bulk-retention. Textured threads are ideal for overedge, chainstich, 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.

**Note: All physical data listed above is based on current averages and should not be used as minimum requirements. The recommended needles sizes, although based on thread diameters should be used as a guideline only. Factors, to name a few such as seam construction, machine type and speed, weight and type of fabric may determine the actual size needed.
