Lana No. 12, Handy Carrying Soft Travel Box
LANA No. 12, Wool embroidery thread, is perfect for creating soft, fluffy or textured designs, such as animal fur. LANA is ideal for use on medium and heavyweight fabrics such as wool, linen, and light weight denim. Use on your overlocker, your regular sewing machine, freehand embroidery hand embroidery, machine embroidered cross stitch designs and computerized embroidery.
Always use the MADEIRA LANA needle, size 110/18 and stabilize and hoop fabric with MADEIRA stabilizers, the choice of professional embroiderers. MADEIRA bobbin threads Bobbinfil No. 70 and the pre-wound Bobbins No. 150 guarantee best stitch results.
Once LANA has been stitched, the MADEIRA Lana brush can be used to create the lovely soft, fluffy texture required. For use on your embroidery machine some adjustments need to be made before stitching because LANA is a thicker thread. Stitch length should be long, stitches should not be densely packed together, and the design should have some underlay or padding stitches to cover the base fabric and raise the surface a little. Most machines allow resizing up to 20% larger without increasing stitch count.
If you own digitizing software any design can be adjusted to use LANA threads. Either increase size of the design without changing stitch count, or reduce stitch count to keep size of design.
