Polos & t-shirts.


Sewing threads for warp and weft knitted fabrics have to be soft and should not stand out. For the neckline and sleeves, the seams need to be especially precise and non-itchy. If there is a collar, as on a polo shirt, the inner edge has to be soft and trimmed with piping. If woven fabric is used for the button panel and collar, this demands a special joining technique too. AMANN supplies the appropriate sewing threads for this - soft and skin-friendly in the seams, and with high performance in the sewing process. 


AMANN sewing thread recommendation.

As a universal sewing thread for polos and T-shirts we recommend sabac 120 in combination with sabaTEX 120 for serging or 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
