Nylon Thread


Nylon thread is one of many types of thread that are available for use with home sewing machines, as well as in industrial applications. Also commonly referred to as polyamide, nylon is a synthetic fiber that first became popular in homes across the United States in 1940 when nylon pantyhose were introduced. Since that time, nylon has been widely used, both as both a thread and as a fabric. When compared to other types of thread, nylon is appreciated because it is extremely strong and flexible. This is important because a sewn seam should be stronger than the material that is being sewn in order to ensure the durability of the finished product.
