EKA mercerised

high-quality cotton mercerised - COLOURFAST-according to Öko-Tex Standard 100

EKA thread is a high-quality industrial sewing thread of 100 % finest, long-staple natural cotton, mercerised and with a colour-fast dye. The processing of this natural product to becoming a sewing thread begins in the spinning mill. Then the combed cotton spun yarns are cleared electronically of all thick spots in automatic bobbin winders. After the doubling process a twist is produced on large-capacity twisting machines, the twisting of which is constantly monitored. This is the condition for forming a sewing thread, which bears the highest sewing stresses due to its high evenness. The twisting process is followed by singeing and mercerising. Both processes change the surface and the molecular structure of the fibre, so that a silky gloss and an additional increase of tear strength is produced. Subsequently, the electronically controlled dyeing process is started: our EKA mercerised thread is dyed into nearly 360 light-fast and wash-fast colours. At last the dyed sewing twist receives a finish. This is necessary in order to bear the high stresses during the strenuous sewing procedure.
