Madeira - Heat Reactive Thread 200m

Madeira - Heat Reactive Thread 200m

(0 reviews)  

Madeira Heat Reactive Smocking thread 200m. This is the third in the series of Madeira's Special Effect Threads. Smocking is a heat reactive thread that shrinks when an iron is drawn over it, whereas the fabric does not, causing the fabric to pucker in a controlled way.

The wrinkled effects are beautiful and limitless. No special needle is required and shrink embroidery can be sewn on and type of embroidery machine. Just a standard household iron is more than suitable for the pourpose.

How do I do it?
1. Stick with a simple design that consists mostly of run stitches and have alot of negative space.

To make the embroidery 'shrink, or puff up' the thread needs to be exposed to heat. With a steaming iron, turn the fabric over to the WRONG side, bobbin side up with a ligt pressure iron the reverse. If you press heavily you will acheive a 'wrinkled' effect.

200m reel.
