Embroidery Thread

Embroidery thread is yarn that is manufactured or hand-spun specifically for embroidery and other forms of needlework.

Polyester embroidery thread is the popular and economical choice. It is available in a wide assortment of colors, and your results will be similar to that of rayon. The benefit of polyester is that it won't shrink, fade or bleed. Like rayon thread, polyester thread is strong and won't easily break or fray.

Polyester thread is synthetically produced from polymer resins. It can be made with a matte finish to look like cotton, with a medium sheen, or high sheen finish to look like rayon or silk. Due to its strength and color fastness polyester is becoming one of the most popular embroidery threads available these days.

There are two types of polyester thread:

  • Spun poly: fiber staples spun together. Looks like cotton.
  • Filament poly: continuous fiber.

Advantages of polyester:

  • Durable. Designed for heavy duty use.
  • Strength. More tensile strength than rayon or cotton.
  • Colorfast.
  • Retains shape.
  • Recovers stretch.
