Cotton: A medium thickness (size 50) is available in a wide range of colors, and is used for sewing on light and medium weight cottons, rayons and linens. Cotton thread is usually mercerized, a finishing process that makes it smooth and lustrous, also helping it to take dye better. The lack of "give" in cotton thread makes it an unwise choice for knits or other stretchy fabrics, as the stitches will tend to pop.

Silk: A fine (size A) strong thread for sewing on silk and wool. Its fineness makes it ideal for basting all fabric types, as it does not leave holes from stitching or imprints after pressing. Because of its elasticity, silk is also suitable for sewing any type of knit.

Nylon: A fine (size A) strong thread for sewing light to medium weight synthetics. This is especially suited to nylon tricot.

Colorful ThreadPolyester: An all-purpose weight (approximately size 50) is suitable for sewing on most fabrics, but particularly recommended for woven synthetics; also for knits and other stretch fabrics of any fiber. Most polyester threads have a wax or silicone finish to help them slip through the fabric with a minimum of friction.

Cotton-Wrapped Polyester: An all-purpose weight (approximately size 50) for sewing on knits or wovens of synthetic or natural fibers or blends. The polyester core gives this type of thread strength and elasticity, the cotton wrapping gives it a tough, heat resistant surface.
