Smooth Metallic 8 Spool Box
Metallic thread brings shimmer and shine – and greater perceived value – to your embroidery.
MADEIRA’s Metallic Threads feature a strong textured polyester filament core with a metallized polyester foil wrap, promising uncompromising strength and durability. And with more metallic colors than anywhere else in the industry, MADEIRA’s Metallic will spark your imagination, as well as your design!
Metallic is less pliable, therefore, tensions should be readjusted. A sample run is recommended on the production fabric before attempting to run the production order. Metallic thread will usually run as well as rayon, provided that tensions are looser than normal. Fabric type and weight, along with the execution of the design, will determine how loose or tight the tensions should be set.
The design must be programmed correctly for metallic thread. It is essential that your puncher (software) is adjusted to the type and size of metallic thread, along with the fabric it will be stitched on. Consequently, stitch length and density must be adjusted accordingly.
The thread smooth touch and strong performance is obtained thanks to a new and elaborated twist construction. The strong Trilobal PES core is wrapped by a narrow metalized PES-foil and reduces the metalized proportion of the thread to only 25%. This makes the thread twist extremely flexible and gives the thread its unique smoothness.
When stitching with metallic on any machine, make sure that your equipment is in excellent running condition. Also, the thread guides should be free of rough spots.
General Directions for Use: We recommend the use of our special MADEIRA metallic needle, for machine embroidery with MADEIRA METALLIC threads. Always start with a new needle and replace frequently, as metallic threads have an abrasive effect on the needle, and in turn this will cause thread damage. Try to keep thread tensions as low as possible.
This gift box contains 8 spools.
