ESTER 80 (Tex 40) is a good, strong corespun 100% polyester sewing thread, ideal for sewing many weights of fabric from fine to heavy weight, both by hand and machine. It's manufactured in Poland by Amanda Threads, a company that we're pleased to present to the North American market. ESTER 80 is both thin and strong. We use and recommend it for sewing projects from as fine as chiffon or as heavy as denim.
Sold by the spool. Each spool contains 1,094 yards (1000 meters).
We currently sell this thread in 96 colors. This listing contains just the white, cream and brown shades. Please note that colors may appear different from one computer screen to another. Because of this, we've tried to describe the colors in words and also to provide the nearest Pantone color reference. The Pantone reference can be useful if you have a Pantone book, but if not, we caution against looking them up on the internet, since differences in color on the pictures in this listing will also be reproduced in the Pantone swatch shown on your screen.
