Made To Sew - Polyester Thread

End use of cotton


There are so, so many. Cotton is an incredibly versatile and popular fiber. The most common end-uses are:

  • Knitted into jersey that is used for cut-and-sew knits. This production category can include may things, usually a pretty casual garment (but not always), and VERY popular:
  • Tee Shirts
  • Tank tops/Singlets/Undershirts
  • Polo Shirts
  • Leggings/Bike Shorts
  • Skirts/Skorts
  • Dresses
  • Undergarments
  • Woven into a lightweight fabric like broadcloth, poplin, or oxford that is typically used for collared shirts, but can also be used for dresses or skirts, and also sometimes in home goods like quilting
  • Woven into heavier-weight fabric used for bottoms, especially:
  • Denim (jeans)
  • Twill (used for chinos)
  • Regular weave patterns, also used in men’s and women’s slacks
  • Woven in a special “sateen” technique that gives the fabric a sheen. This is often applied to fancier styles, like men’s dress pants or blazers, women’s dresses or skirts
  • Spun into yarn that is then knitted into sweaters, especially lightweight for summer
  • Blended with all myriad of other fibers (wool, silk, polyester, nylon, spandex, etc.) to create fabrics with different feels, looks, and qualities, all with different end-uses. If you blend it poly, nylon, and/or spandex, it can take on more performance qualities, good for activewear. If you blend with wool or silk, it takes on a luxurious quality good for high-end products like fine women’s and men’s sweaters, tees, dresses, and evening apparel.
