So if you have an overlocking machine, you’ll know exactly what overlocker thread is and what it’s for !
Overlockers used to be a pretty big investment and consequently not many people owned one, but prices have fallen and a domestic overlocker is not quite so unusual today. If you are a serious ‘sewist’, an overlocker will give such a neat professional finish to most seams, that once you take the plunge and acquire one, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without!
Thing is, overlocking uses a lot of thread, hence these thread cones are a whopping 5000 yards !
Overlockers are a bit fiddly to re-thread, with most models requiring three or four thread sources, so all but the most purist perfectionists tend to stick with just black, white or natural colours
