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.


What is Tex Weight?

It’s common to see threads labeled with a “Tex” Number. But what does that number mean? Tex, or Tex Weight, is a standard way of measuring thread weight that’s deceptively easy to understand: the higher the Tex, the thicker the thread. That’s all there is to it!

A thread’s Tex is equal to the weight in grams of 1000 meters of that thread, so a heavier thread has a higher Tex. For example, if 1000 meters of a thread weighs 30 grams, it is Tex 30. Typical light-weight sewing threads range from Tex 8-25, medium-weight sewing threads are Tex 25-40, and heavy-weight sewing threads are Tex 40 and up.

We know that sewing thread weights can be confusing, so we put together a handy chart of some equivalents between commonly used thread weights to help you find the perfect match.
