Homewear includes tracksuits for wearing at home, which are soft and elastic, with a fashionable cut, comfortable and chic at the same time. Warp-knitted softness, velvet-like surfaces and fine knitwear mustn’t lose their feel-good character because the seams are wrong. All the sewing threads AMANN offers for underwear and homewear will fulfil your every wish in terms of softness and security.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for homewear we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging and coverstitch seams. 

Depending on the fabric and the sewing conditions such as the stitch density and stitch type, it might be worthwhile selecting other qualities from the AMANN range:

  • for closing seams in fine fabric qualities sabac 150
  • for fine coverstitch seams sabaTEX 250
  • for highly elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 120
