Sewing Thread?

I was just looking at the THreadexchange.com. So what is the difference between soft, bonded and flat thread?

Bonded thread has a coating on it so it reduces friction as the thread is pulled through the machine and needle while sewing. It helps the thread not to fray.

Soft thread is simply un-bonded thread. No coating.

Flat thread? Never used this, but I assume it is flat... The cross section of regular thread is round. Flat thread is probably, well, flat!

Don't buy anything but bonded thread for an industrial sewing machine.

I have personally never heard of flat sewing thread. I don't know how you'd make something flat out of strands that are round. Where did you see this referred to on the Thread Exchange web site?

BTW, soft thread does have some lubrication added to it after it is dyed, but it is not processed in any other way.

Your link doesn't work. Are you sure they're not talking about flat black as far as color?

Read underneath. It says has a ......"flat satin finish that model shipbuilders prefer." The thread is round, the color is flat satin black.

Yup, it's just the color and sheen of the thread, not its shape.
