Maxi-Lock 100% Polyester Serging Thread

What's the difference between serger thread and sewing thread?

Serger thread, like this 100% polyester Maxi-Lock All Purpose Thread, meets the demands of an overlock machine. It withstands the high speeds and tensions that are unique to serging with ease. The texture of serger thread is smoother than sewing thread, too. This allows the thread to move through the machine at high speeds, and the smooth, consistent texture makes maintaining thread tension a breeze. Plus, it prevents excessive shedding or fraying. Choose from 3,000 yds. or 6,000 yds. cones in a variety of colors.

I plan on using the Maxi Lock Stretch thread on my serger. Do I need to put it in all 4 threads holders of my serger?

You would normally only put this in your lower looper for most projects.

I read below that you can use this thread in a home machine, but in the bobbin. So does that mean to use a universal thread through your needle or use the stretch thread as well?

Correct. You would use the stretch thread only in the bobbin and a standard all purpose thread for the needle.

Is there any special technique required to wind this onto a bobbin?

A:
You don't want the tension to be too tight. If using on a home machine, some people have had luck hand holding the thread while the thread was wound on the bobbin winder, as opposed to weaving the thread through the machine to the bobbin winder. There is less thread on the bobbin, when it is not wound as tight.

We checked with the manufacturer of the thread, they said that yes, you can indeed iron it. It will also not pucker like Wooly Nylon did.

Hi Julia, no, I'm sorry we do not carry the Wooly Nylon any longer. We were having some problems getting that thread in. We do believe the Maxi-Lock Stretch is a great alternative, though.

I saw an answer stating to use this on the lower looper. Would you use this for all four threads on a serger for a 4 way stretch fabric, or is it only for the lower looper? Not on the upper looper? I need to know how many cones to buy.

Can the Maxi-Lock stretch be substituted for Woolley nylon and vice versa?

A:
It is similar, but the Woolley nylon is a bit fuzzier, and stretcher.

Can this thread be used in a sewing machine and if so is there any special rules one needs to follow i.e. stitch length, needle size?
NANCY M.

Please Note: Your answer will be displayed upon approval.
A:
Yes, this thread can be used on sewing machines. It's mainly used in the bobbin for regular machines and in the lower looper for serger machines. The size needle would be a standard size 12. Stitch length and tensions may need to be adjusted, but you will have to do some trail and error to get it right.

This thread would work well for this application. The thread also fluffs up to enhance the look of the stitching.

We do not carry a match in our maxilock stretch for those Gutermann color numbers. The closest would be the SPT1032599 "natural".

Does the "pearl" color become almost opaque when it is part of a serged stitch? Looking for a color that will blend into fabric colors when I don't have a matching color for serger loopers.
MOLLY H.

A:
No, I'm afraid this thread is not opaque. The Gutermann Skala thread tends to blend into the fabric color it is stitched into, however, that thread is much thinner (tex 8 or tex 15).

Beware of colors

I recently received 15 cones of these serger threads, and most of them were the color described. However, taupe was brown and mother goose was medium beige. I expected a harvest gold/golden yellow, and there wasn't a trace of yellow at all.

Hello. We are going to send a sample of the jean gold, perhaps that was what you were looking for. Thank you for your review.

Good quality

Works well for me, it's my go to stretch thread for knits and knit lingerie . I use it in the serger and coverstitch loopers and the bobbin in the sewing machine. The only issue I've ever had is with it unraveling (I think due to it's slippery nature or perhaps it's my machines? They are basic Brothers) too quickly from the spool and snagging on the thread holder or pedestal and causing tight stitches or broken stitches.

It my serger loopers

I use this in my serger loopers. My son is very active so the stretch thread is a must, ever since I put this in the loopers- no popped seams. It is cheaper than other stretch thread but works just as well.
