Problem in sewing threads

ramfashion | Posted in General Discussion on


This is Venkatraman from india and working in export garment division. I found one problem in sewing threads. We use Tex 27 spun poly threads for Overlock operation. But the threads has more hariness. Buyer wants absolutely hariness free threads but it must in tex 27. If anyone know anything about avoiding hariness please post your reply. It is very useful for me.

Thnaks / regards,
Venkatraman. S

    After a small amount of research, using Google, I discovered that TEX is a term of measurement of thread, which I'm sure you know, but which is probably unfamiliar to most of us on this forum. I saw that TEX 27 is a heavy-weight thread. By "hariness", I assume you mean "hairiness", or how fuzzy or hairy the thread is. Is that a correct assumption? The following site, which I also discovered using Google, allows you to find the properties of many materials, including threads.


    I hope this is helpful. I think you may have to contact the manufacturer of the thread you're using to find if there's another thread the same size with the properties you need.

          That does look like an interesting, useful site, doesn't it? I continue to be amazed at what info is available to us.

        You're very welcome. I expected some other forum members to join in with their expertise about threads - maybe some of the professionals who use those different threads will, still. As a home-sewer only, I'm not familiar with a lot of industrial tools. I hope you're able to get the information you need.
