Active sportswear.


Clothes for athletes have to be one thing above all: functional. This starts with the fabrics, which are not only important for thermal and moisture management, but for professional athletes can even be knitted to fit to provide support for stressed muscles. The synthetic materials used feature a wide range of specific properties for which AMANN supplies the right sewing threads. Softness and a pleasant feel must not stand in the way of high durability. Top performance is required, not only in the sport itself but also from the sewing threads.


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for active sportswear we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging.

Depending on the material 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 finer fabrics sabac 150 in combination with sabaTEX 250
  • for elastic fabrics sabaFLEX 120
