THE FACTORY

ABOUT US

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 are safest for our employees and kindest to the environment.   

The Winding

The way we wind our threads matters. Stack and cross wound spools are perfectly tensioned for smooth delivery.

The Fire

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

The Dye House

Quality pigments and perfect calibration achieve rich, true, consistent colors that stand up to heat, use, and cleaning.

THE FINEST

FOR OUR THREAD ARTISTS

Scanfil thread is the best thread for the memories you make…whether you sew, embroider, quilt or craft.
