Thread Info


Woolly Nylon Looper Thread provides excellent seam coverage - plus super contrast edging on e.g. household textiles. great on stretch fabrics, lycra & knitwear - also known as '80s Bulk Nylon' for overlockers.

Woolly Nylon is designed to essentially 'fluff out' as it runs through the guides of the overlocking machine. This creates a 'bulkier' thread which, once in place, spreads to cover more of the seam. For more information take a look at this Woolly Nylon Thread Overlocking Article.

Use only on the Looper. We recommend Empress Polyester Overlocking Thread for use on the needles whilst Woolly Nylon runs on the looper.

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

Remember ‘Overlocking’ is the same as ‘Serging’ – essentially serging is the term used in the USA..

Popular amongst machine knitters.
