The Scanfil brand was founded in The Netherlands in 1970. Our company remains family owned, and we continue to manufacture all of our threads in Europe. Our state-of-the-art facilities and innovative thinking allow us to produce the finest thread you will find, by methods that ensure sustainable and ethical textile production – worker-friendly and good for the planet.

The Winding

The way we wind our threads matters. Stack and cross wound spools are precision wound to deliver even tension and no knots.

The Fire

Lubrication and gassing are everything in finest quality thread. Here, very low lint is achieved. Here, the tensile strength is born.

The Dye House

Dyed and coated with non-toxic solutions that will not bleed with washing.
