  1. lisle thread

    Lisle thread is a type of cotton thread that has been processed and treated to be extremely smooth, strong, and long-lasting. It's typically used in the manufacturing of high-end hosiery, gloves, and clothing items. The thread is made by taking multiple strands of cotton, twisting them tightly together, and then singeing off any loose fibers to create a polished finish. The process of making lisle thread gives it its unique characteristics of strength, durability, and a shiny appearance.
