Gutermann Thread, 100% recycled polyester
A beautiful way to do your part to protect the environment in 50 different colors! If you like we can pick the color that best matches your fabric.
We know how much you love natural fibers. We do too! ..but polyester thread is better for many garment sewing applications. It's strongerand holds up to wear and tear better (think of the consequences of a stressed garment seam giving way!). It also stretches, which is especially important when sewing knits, stretch wovens and even natural fibers with a little spandex or "give" in their structure. We love Gutermann thread, even if it costs a little more. It's cross wound which means it comes off the spool more easily, especially if your spool holder is horizontally mounted (as is the case with most modern machines).
10 spools of 100% Recycled Polyester Sew-all Thread are produced from just one PET beverage bottle, with the same good quality as the Gutermann Sew-all Polyester Thread you know and love.
One bottle may not seem like more than a drop in the bucket, but did you know that each liter bottle uses 250 ml (or one quarter of its volume) of oil to produce, fill, label ship and transport? I learned that from my resident Southwest High School Green Team member.
So fill up your reusable water bottle with tap water, and get sewing.
Note: Due to COVID 19 supply chain issues, there have been shortages of some of our recycled threads, which means that we may periodically have to order non-recycled Guterman thread to maintain our full color range.
