The perfect stretch seam - it should be elastic and meet the requirements of daily life at the same time. In order to maintain the elasticity of knitted fabric and elastic woven fabric during processing, stitch density as well as the stitch type are important. With Maraflex by Gütermann you optimise your thread consumption and obtain nice, flexible seams.
I find this thread also great for high stress seams that might not necessarily be jersey or elastic material but require a higher strength thread that will not break when pulled hard.
Be sure to use the thread on top needle and on your bobbin also for the technology to work. You can sew a straight stitch seam that will have stretchability compared to standard sew-all or cotton thread, suitable for stretch stitches.
