Elastic fabrics are on trend. They are comfortable to wear, dimensionally stable and tear-resistant. For outfits made of jersey and stretch, to fit perfectly, they need elastic seams.
The Maraflex quality sewing thread is now available for this purpose. It allows for extra stretchiness – and the clothes move with you. Maraflex is the elastic sewing thread for household sewing machines. It creates elastic seams using straight stitch easily – without an overlock or coverlock sewing machine. With a seam stretch of up to 80 %, this sewing thread is particularly flexible. It is perfect for sewing light to medium-weight knitwear and elastic woven fabrics, such as jersey or fabrics with elastane.
Maraflex is always used in combination as a needle thread and bobbin thread and is sewn with low thread tension. This allows the seam to expand optimally at a later stage. The best seam elasticity is achieved with four stitches per centimetre.
Whether it is a round neckline, tight seams or cuffs on the legs and sleeves, Maraflex makes clothing flexible. It is perfect for hoodies, joggers and children‘s trousers. Trimming is no longer necessary on non-fraying fabrics: Simply cut off the seam allowance close to the edge – and that is it.
Like most of Gütermann creativ quality sewing threads, Maraflex has been produced using Micro Core Technology®. MCT® is the unique microfilament polyester-based core spun technology – Made in Germany. This production process makes Maraflex a particularly high-quality sewing thread
