Pretty standard, Cotton covered polyester.

Coats & Clark brand is "All Purpose Dual Duty Plus, Mercerized Cotton
Covered Polyester"

I tend to use Dual Duty for zig zagging the edges, buttonholes and low
stress seams, Nylon Upholstery thread for high stress seams and
buttons/fasteners when making fighting togs.
