Maraflex is the elastic sewing thread for household sewing machines. It creates elastic seams using straight stitch easily – without an overlock or coverlock sewing machine. With a seam stretch of up to 80 %, this sewing thread is particularly flexible. It is perfect for sewing light to medium-weight knitwear and elastic woven fabrics, such as jersey or fabrics with elastane. Maraflex is always used in combination as a needle thread and bobbin thread and is sewn with low thread tension. This allows the seam to expand optimally at a later stage. The best seam elasticity is achieved with four stitches per centimetre. It is ideal for sewing around necklines, tight seams and sleeve and leg cuffs.
