Posted by Signature Patches | January 17, 2012 at 4:39pm | Topic: Custom Patches

Do you know the difference between a 75% thread patch and a 100% thread patch? At first glance, you might not be able to distinguish between the two. After careful examination, however, you will see there is a distinct difference.

Here is how you can differentiate between the different thread counts:


  • At 75% thread there is going to be some area of the patch that will need to have mesh on it.

  • With 100% thread the patch will have 100% Rayon thread throughout the patch and you run your hand across the patch. (No mesh backing will show).
