Thread Construction: Thread made from cotton or polyester staple fibers that are spun into single yarns and then two or more of these yarns are plied to make a sewing thread. Spun threads have a fibrous surface giving them a soft hand and good lubricity characteristics. Spun threads are used in everything from women's intimate apparel to heavy leather gloves. These threads will pull apart if the twist is backed out of the thread. See Perma Spun®, Anecot®, Anecot Plus®.
