UNITEX - TEXTURED POLYESTER

Textured Threads - are made from continuous filaments of polyester 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.
