thread,

a fine twist of fibrous material, distinguished from yarnyarn,
fibers or filaments formed into a continuous strand for use in weaving textiles or for the manufacture of thread. A staple fiber, such as cotton, linen, or wool, is made into yarn by carding, combing (for fine, long staples only), drawing out into roving, then spinning.

 is made by twisting several fine strands into three-cord or six-cord thread, the latter being three two-ply strands twisted together. The size is controlled by the twisting process. The fine linen thread used in making expensive laces is spun by hand and is very costly. Synthetic threads, such as nylon, are most often used for heavy-duty sewing in carpets, shoes, and heavy canvases. Many ordinary sewing threads now contain some proportion of synthetic fiber.

Thread

 

a filamentous length made from twisted cotton, wool, spun flax, natural silk, or chemical fibers. There are special threads for sewing, embroidery, knitting, and darning. Thread comes in various colors and has a mat or shiny surface. There also are unpolished raw threads. The thickness of threads is designated numerically: the thinner the thread, the higher its number (for example, cotton threads range in thickness from 10 to 80).
