Single cones of 2.5 lb White Bag Closing Thread. High quality, smooth running thread. Use sewing thread with Newlong, Fischbein, Union Special or any other bag closer. 12/5 sewing thread had an oiled finish so it will run thru the bag closer smoothly. This bag closing thread is 100% polyester so there is less 'fluff' residue to clog up the bag closer than a poly-cotton blend. Polyester thread will also hold up better outdoors. Cones weigh approximately 2.5 lbs each but there is some variation in weight.

Called by many different names – Balls of thread, bag closing string, sewing twine, or spools of thread – these are actually cones and not spools (a spool has a straight core with a flange at the base). Use polyester thread to close sandbags, paper bags of potatoes, woven poly bags of fertilizer and burlap bags of coffee beans.
