Default Nylon Thread?

I use Isacord thread and have never had complaints. The thread polyester and is great. Someone asked me to use nylon thread for their order. What brand uses nylon thread? What's the difference between Nylon and Polyester? Why would someone specifically request nylon thread?

I haven't heard of that myself. I would have to ask my customer why they are requesting that type of thread. What are you embroidering?

I'd put money on them thinking it will hold up better for outdoor items or launders better. I've only ever used it for utility-type sewing, it doesn't seem practical for embroidery. American efird offers a bonded nylon thread that's very heavy duty, I wouldn't try running it through one of my machines though. Color selection is pretty limited also. I think it's mainly used for sewing shoes together. I'd try to steer them towards the polyester thread, it holds up great and sews well.

I could be wrong (you could call Madeira to be certain) but I think this is a case of the customer using terminology that doesn't apply to embroidery. I think your polyester thread will be fine.
