Thread Info


Overlocking Thread (Polyester) - for running on both the overlocker's needle & loopers.

This is the same thread as our super popular and economical General Purpose Polyester Thread. The same properties that make it perfect for general sewing use make it ideal for overlocking too!

Manufactured to industrial standards and with finished processing in our own UK facilities this, poly thread is a great all rounder and ideal for the vast majority overlocking applications. We guarantee it will run on your machine.

For ultimate seam coverage use Empress Polyester Overlocking Thread in conjunction with Empress Woolly Nylon Thread.

Remember 'Overlocking' is the same as 'Serging' - essentially serging is the term used in the USA.

Also suitable for general purpose sewing of all light & medium weight fabrics - clothing & household textiles, also sheers e.g. lingerie.
