Question about threads!

Guys, a couple of weeks ago i purchase a couple of spools of bonded nylon thread #69 (metric40) and #138 (metric 20) i have used both in my sewing machine no problems, but after doing a bit more research on threads i wanted to try some of the bonded polyester. i've just recieved a 4oz spool of coats ultra dee bonded polyester #92 (metric 30). It seems really soft in comparison with the nylon, but also quite thin. Under magnification it seems thinner than the #69 bonded nylon. Is something wrong here?

thanks

I would say something is wrong. Size 92 thread should be 1/2 again larger than size 69 thread, no matter what it's made of. Maybe they mislabeled your spool. What does the label say on the bottom of the plastic spool?

dan, first thing i checked was the label and it did cross my mind that the spool could have the wrong label. All is correct on the label DB92 TEX 90 etc. I will email the company i ordered through. Thanks again

Let us know what happened. I could never find a supplier near where I live and do it all by the net. Some places around here do sell thread. But they haven't a clue to the size. They call it "All Purpose" - and most likely it's not for my purposes.
