Thread

There is a wide range of yards permitting creation of various patterns. It combines with smooth or formed silk with spun yarn, two or more colours and more yarns from various materials. Wrapped yarns are usually a combination of silk core wrapped in natural fibres or their mixture with synthetic fibres. Thus, stronger material is achieved with better hygienic properties as well as improved feel. An example can be rubber threads wrapped in cotton. Wrapping protects the rubber threads and limits their elasticity. Elastomer as well as polyurethane fibres are also wrapped. They permit production of very elastic, soft and lightweight fabrics.
