Common Embroidery Threads

Common embroidery threads

Different computer embroidery machines embroidered lines, the texture varies widely. For different fabrics and customer requirements, you must first understand the adaptability of the embroidery thread. Avoid situations where you don't match. Here are a few common embroidery lines to analyze their respective characteristics.


    The properties of rayon and polyester threads are similar, and the former has the advantage of more color choices. In addition, as mentioned above, the stability of the rayon is also higher than that of the polyester yarn, and even if it is pulled by the machine frame, it does not shrink significantly, but it is easy to touch the fire and is not suitable for frequent washing.

    metallic line

    The characteristic of the wire is that the outer layer of the wire is covered with a metal film, and the inner layer is composed of rayon or polyester yarn. Due to the surface gloss of the thread, the designer can create a brilliant embroidering effect; however, at the same time, it also has a negative impact on embroidery. Because during embroidery, the embroidery needle, the embroidery thread and the cloth often rub together to generate heat. At this time, the young hair of the embroidery thread plays a role, and the heat is carried away by the embroidery needle, while the surface of the wire does not have the hair. The heat of the embroidery needle still exists, so that the metal film is dissolved by heat, and even causes disconnection.

    Wool thread

    The wool thread is thicker than the general embroidery thread and is a different type of embroidery thread. It is most commonly used in towel embroidery, rope embroidery and chain stitching. It is especially beautiful on knitted fabrics, especially for girls knitwear, soft embroidery effect, and the beauty of handicrafts. Due to its thick texture, it is necessary to use a thicker needle. The 100 or 110 needle is suitable, but it should be considered whether it can match the fabric. In addition, the thread tension should be relatively loose, allowing enough space for the embroidery thread to move.

    Polyester silk embroidery thread

    Polyester silk is characterized by its resistance to chemicals and frequent washing, which reduces the discoloration and discoloration of clothing. Therefore, hotel uniforms, stone blue denim, sportswear or children's clothing are made of polyester yarn. In order to prevent the phenomenon of washing and fading to the utmost extent. Relatively speaking, polyester yarn is tougher than rayon. When embroidering, the machine runs at high speed, and the polyester yarn with high toughness can also withstand large pulling force; therefore, it is commonly used for embroidering on hard embroidered materials such as three-dimensional embroidery, cap pieces, shoes, and handbags. Moreover, its fire resistance is extremely high, and even if the clothes are close to the flame, it is not easy to catch fire. The thread of polyester yarn is not more stable than rayon, but it is more elastic. You can cut a rayon thread for testing, pull it hard, then relax. You find that the embroidery thread does not shrink. On the contrary, once pulled, the polyester yarn will return to its original length and thus have the opportunity to cause wrinkles. Therefore, the online tension adjustment needs to be more accurate.
