Where Do Fibers Come From?
Nov 14, 2018

Fibers used to make industrial sewing threads come from two major sources:


Natural Fibers- Come from plants or animals and are spun or twisted into yarns. Cotton is the most common natural fiber used to make thread. Other natural fibers include rayon, Lyocel®, silk, wool, jute, ramie, hemp, and linen. Natural fibers are generally not as uniform as synthetic fibers and are affected by climatic changes. We select our cotton fibers from the best available crops, classifying them depending on the geographic location, climate, plant seed type, and the cotton grower’s reputation. The two classes of cotton fibers that we use include SAK (or Supima) cotton and CP (or Peeler) cotton. SAK is generally a higher quality cotton that produces stronger spun cotton threads than CP fibers.


Synthetic Fibers- Are made from various chemicals that are then melt-spun or wet-spun into a continuous filament fibers. We select our synthetic fibers based on their sewability characteristics, seam performance, ease of dying, colorfastness, pricing and sustainability. The most common synthetic fibers used by A&E’s customers include Polyester and Nylon. Other specialty synthetic fibers include polypropylene, aramids including Kevlar® & Nomex®, PPS, and PTFE.


(DuPont™, Kevlar®, and Nomex® are registered Trademarks of E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company and are used under license to A&E®.)


Fibers Forms- Sewing threads are made in seven different thread constructions using either staple fibers, continuous filament fibers, or a combination of both. Staple fibers are spun into a specific yarn (cotton count – ex. 29/1) and then plied into a sewing thread (cotton count – ex. 29/2 or 29/3).


Continuous Filaments are used in the manufacturing of five thread constructions including: twisted multifilament, monocord, textured, air entangled and monofilament. Continuous filaments are normally sized using the denier system. Threads made from continuous filaments are generally stronger and have greater uniformity than threads made from staple fibers.


Corespun threads are made from a continuous filament bundle of fibers that are then wrapped with a staple wrapper.
