Introducing Coats Terko Satin™ ...

April 2021

Requested by so many of you for hand sewing, we have now added Coats Terko Satin™ to our workroom range of sewing threads.

A corespun thread Terko Satin™ combines the high tenacity and strength of a polyester filament core with a cotton wrap, delivering the sewing performance of a continuous filament thread, yet providing the matt appearance of cotton.

The cotton wrap protects the polyester core from needle heat even in the most demanding of applications. The glacé finish is imparted through a special polishing process which binds together the fibrous surface of the thread and creates a lustrous finish to the thread with enhanced abrasion resistance.

Suitable for all materials, but ideal for cotton and linen fabrics. To browse and buy at click here.
