When Quality, Reliability & Service Are The Key Factors


Types of fabric

There are two main types of fabrics: natural and synthetic.

  • Natural fabrics are made from fibers that come from plants, animals, or minerals. Some examples of natural fabrics include cotton, linen, wool, silk, and cashmere.
  • Synthetic fabrics are made from man-made fibers. Some examples of synthetic fabrics include polyester, nylon, acrylic, and Spandex.
  • Fabric content
  • The fabric content of a fabric refers to the type of fibers that are used to make it. Fabric content is usually listed on a care label that is sewn into the garment. Knowing the fabric content of a garment can help you care for it properly.
  • Fabric weight
  • The fabric weight refers to the thickness or density of the fabric. Fabric weight is usually measured in grams per square meter (g/m²). Heavier fabrics are more durable and can be used for outerwear or upholstery, while lighter fabrics are more breathable and can be used for clothing or curtains.
  • Fabric weave
  • The fabric weave refers to the way that the threads are interlaced to create the fabric. There are three main types of weaves: plain weave, twill weave, and satin weave.


Cotton thread is a popular type of thread used for a variety of sewing and crafting projects. Here’s some information about cotton thread:

  • Material: Made from 100% cotton fibers, which are natural and breathable.
  • Properties:
    • Strong and durable, making it suitable for projects that need to withstand wear and tear.
    • Absorbent, allowing it to take dye well and be colorfast.
    • Can be comfortable next to the skin, making it a good choice for garments and other close-fitting projects.
    • Generally comes in a matte finish, but can also be mercerized for a shinier look.
  • Uses:
    • Sewing garments and clothing
    • Quilting and patchwork
    • Embroidery
    • General sewing projects and repairs
  • Things to consider when choosing cotton thread:
    • Weight: Thread comes in various weights, which refers to the thickness of the thread. Lighter weight threads are good for delicate fabrics, while heavier weights are better for sturdier fabrics.
    • Color: Cotton thread comes in a wide variety of colors to match your project.
    • Twist: The way the fibers are twisted together affects the strength and smoothness of the thread. More tightly twisted threads are stronger but less smooth, while more loosely twisted threads are smoother but less strong.
