Top Quanilty Cotton/Polyester thread is perfect for just about any general purpose tailoring need or repair. Tex 40, cotton-covered polyester thread gives you the feel of cotton, yet the strength and elasticity of polyester. American made. 12,000 yards per spool.
In previous machines I had used serger thread but when I bought a Juki using an all purpose thread was a must. I gauge how sturdy a thread is by if I can break/snap it with my hands. I CANNOT break this thread. It is by far the strongest thread I have ever used, wish it came in black for my darker color projects. I sew for a living (5-6 days a week, 8-10 hours a day) and it has lasted for almost 4 months. BEST THREAD EVER.
I use this thread in my serger and occasionally for hand-sewing. It's very sturdy and feeds through my machine beautifully. And the price is great (especially when on sale - that's when I tend to stock up). It can also be used in my sewing machines.
