Best thread for trim on old shirt

Dotty2's picture

I have a favorite old medium weight denim shirt that I would like to extend the life of. It has a fraying collar and cuffs. I'd like to satin stitch over all the edges. Would it be better to do this on a sewing macine or surger? What type of thread should I use? The fabric is not as heavy as jeans, but it does get a bit thick in places.
