Wow. A couple of months ago, my guild had a guest speaker from a local sewing machine store come speak about thread. She recommended Metler. She said that they saw a lot less lint build up with it. Hmmm. She did say that using metallic thread needles helped to cut down on the lint because the eye of the needle is coated with teflon to help the thread smooth through.
I personally use Gutterman for most of my sewing.
