What is SINGLE-NEEDLE STITCHING? Can you do Single Needle Stitching on shirts?
All our shirts are constructed using the single needle stitching method. We do not use lock stitching or interlocking to close the seams in our shirts.
In Stitching, Lockstitch is so named because the two threads, upper and lower, "lock" together in the hole in the fabric through which they pass. Unlike chain stitch, lockstitch does not unravel easily, making it difficult to remove. The term single needle stitching, often found on dress shirt labels, refers to lockstitch, as opposed to chain stitch which unravels easily and is usually used on lower quality garments.
