We offer many threads and cords, from made in the USA to made in Japan, we strive to offer the best, most reliable cords and threads. We have tested and used them all to make sure they all measure up. The following is a list of all the kinds we offer.
Decitex (dtex) : Unit of the linear density of a continuous filament or yarn, equal to 1/10th of a tex or 9/10th of a denier.
Denier: A unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers. It is defined as the mass in grams per 9,000 meters. In the International System of Units the tex is used instead. The denier is based on a natural standard: a single strand of silk is one denier. A 9,000 meter strand of silk weighs one gram.
Tex: Tex is a unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers and is defined as the mass in grams per 1000 meters. Tex is more likely to be used in Canada and,Continental Europe while denier remains more common in the United States and United Kingdom. The unit code is "tex". The most commonly used unit is actually the decitex, abbreviated dtex, which is the mass in grams per 10,000 meters. When measuring objects that consist of multiple fibers the term "filament tex" is sometimes used, referring to the mass in grams per 1000 meters of a single filament.
