Metallic Threads

GLAMOUR_Design_3 GLAMOUR_Design_5Metallic thread make the trend…. .… adding pizzazz and dazzling special effects to any embroidery design. Visual appearance and texture are important features of a perfectly selected embroidery thread and are significantly responsible for the overall impression of embroideries with metallised effect threads. These designs are sophisticated, lavish and precious, making high demands on the choice of thread, color and thickness.

MADEIRA metallised effect threads meet the highest requirements and of course are the highest quality. They run smoothly and problem free on all household sewing and embroidery machines due to their special twist construction unique to every single thread count. The high percentage of metallised foil adds sparkle and glitter to the thread and produces just the right amount of elasticity during embroidery.

Like all other MADEIRA threads, MADEIRA metallic threads can be used for embroidery and decorative effect stitching on anything from fashion, jeans, and home decoration through to precious table linen and elegant evening gowns. Simply reduce tension and stitch counts and most important, we recommend the use of the MADEIRA metallic needle.
