The skirt is a classic piece of ladieswear. Besides its look, durability is an important factor. For skirts, many different sewing threads are used and colours and tickets are carefully selected. No matter where the skirts are produced, AMANN is always there, always close to its customers and their individual requirements. If you sew skirts, you'll find the right thread in AMANN's product range. 


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for skirts we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging and Serafil 120/2 for blindstitch seams.

Depending on the outer 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 coarser fabrics sabac 80, for the finest fabrics sabac 150
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 120
  • for decorative seams sabac in a wide range of tickets up to sabac 25
  • for sparkling accents ISAMET or META 
  • for the finest blindstitch seams Serafil 200/2
