RAYON No. 40 is a rich vibrant and color-fast colors with an unmatched consistency throughout the two sizes of spools available. With the smart size 200m/ 220 yards spool you can afford to buy thread more often and experiment with new colors and textures. The ideal size and shape for frequently used colors. Both spools provide dual thread locks and are neat and tidy to store. MADEIRA thread comes off the spool more smoothly and is specially designed to fit today’s home embroidery machines.
Tip: typical embroidery design contains 6,000 stitches. This means each 1100 yard/1000 m Value Spool with its nearly 200,000 stitches per spool will produce 200 designs on average. MADEIRA’s more traditional spool shape eliminates the “drop off” and tangling problems associated with the elongated spools many other manufacturers use. And, all MADEIRA spools come with double locking end caps to keep thread neat and tidy.

Needles For Rayon embroidery thread, we recommend the MADEIRA Universal needle, size 75/11.
Bobbinfil thread is the choice of professionals in the production of better machine sewing and embroidery. The weight of Bobbinfil is finer compared to other bobbin threads for best embroidery results and twice as much can be wound onto the bobbin of the machine. BOBBINS No.150 (Art. No. 9766), pre-wound bobbin thread by MADEIRA makes bobbin winding unnecessary. Insert into the bobbin case, thread as normal and sew. Also Available in 500m Spools, 1500m spools  and 10,000(!) m spools
