Gutermann polyester thread is my preferred all-purpose sewing machine thread - the rPET thread is strong, smooth, and indistinguishable from the non-recycled version. I just wish it came in the full range of colours!
This lovely, high-quality sewing thread is made from recycled plastic bottles – a more environmentally sustainable alternative to traditional polyester sewing thread.
Because it’s made in the same production facilities with the same processes, it’s virtually indistinguishable from Gutermann non-recycled polyester thread. The colours are identical, too; when you run out of your favourite Gutermann thread, replace it with its rPET equivalent by matching the number on the top of your spool.
Each spool contains 100m of thread.
- Made from recycled plastic beverage bottles, conserving resources and reducing CO2 emitted in the manufacturing process. Approximately 1,000m of rPET sew-all thread is produced from one PET beverage bottle.
- Fade-resistant and colourfast
- Suitable for machine sewing, overlocking and hand sewing
Made in Germany from 100% recycled polyester (rPET) thread on a new 100% polystyrene plastic spool. Click here to view the Gutermann rPET thread brochure.
For a thicker thread, try Gutermann rPET top stitch thread.
For a plastic-free thread, try Scanfil organic cotton sewing thread.
This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
