Premium quality overlock thread in 100% polyester, suitable for use with all overlockers. Overlock thread is slightly finer than regular sewing thread. An overlocker works differently than a sewing machine. Overlocked seams are stretchier. While an overlocker sews with one or two needles and two loopers, a sewing machine sews with an upper thread and a lower thread that lock together between the fabric layers. In overlock stitching, two threads wrap around the edge of the fabric. Essentially, overlock stitching creates a seam and binds edges at the same time. Due to the special overlocker technique and threading, overlock thread is available on 5 m cones. Our overlock thread is certified according to STANDARD 1 by OEKO-TEX®. Nm 12 Nm (metric thread number) = indicates the length of 1 g of thread. The higher the number, the finer the thread. Nm 12 means that 12 m weighs 1 g.
