Mettler Thread is a durable, machine washable thread line made particularly for sewing and quilting projects. Most Mettler Thread is made of long fiber polyester or Egyptian cotton, but they also carry a line of silk finished thread. The spools are twist balanced, meaning the thread won't twist together as the spool unravels, which can lessen knotting and tangles while sewing.
There are so many different types of mettler thread, any sewing project you have can be completed with the right type. Mettler thread also has many different materials to choose from so that you can match your thread to your fabric even more easily.
There are key differences between cotton thread and polyester thread. Cotton thread is a little bit stronger than polyester thread and a lot softer. This makes it ideal for visible seams in your projects. The lack of stretch in cotton thread also makes it ideal for quilting projects because they won't lose their shape. Polyester thread has a little bit of stretch to it, so anything you are sewing to wear should be made with polyester or nylon thread.
Mettler Thread comes in hundreds of colors. Each color can be easily found with their numbering system. Every spool of Mettler Thread has a 3 digit number on the bottom. This is the color number, and most stores have a system to easily locate Mettler Threads based on its color number.
