Cotton thread

Cotton thread is another form of upholstery thread that is used for many jobs. This natural fiber thread can lend a soft look to the stitching in the upholstery. It is important to only use cotton thread that is preshrunk, so the stitching will remain flat. Also keep in mind that cotton does not stretch and is more subject to breaking than other types of upholstery thread. One advantage is that this thread is very easy to color, making it easy to match the shade of the thread with the upholstery material.
