Metallics

Superior Metallics

Trying to turn real metal into a smooth-sewing thread is not an easy task. To successfully run metallics, make sure the thread you are using has three essential components. Don't just go for 'cheap' metallic thread that isn't cheap, there is quality metallic thread available, and at prices less expensive than some of those very poor imitators. Choose wisely using these three benchmarks.

1. Does it have a nylon core? A nylon core is an indication of strength and quality. Polyester and rayon are weaker. A nylon core, combined with "paper-pasting," prevents tangling.

2. Is it "paper-pasted"? The best metallics will have a coat of rice paper pasted over the nylon core. This adheres the nylon core to the metal, resulting in a stronger thread. Metallic threads without the rice paper pasting do not hold up as well during high-speed embroidery. Paper-pasting makes the thread cohesive and flexible.

3. Does it have a protective coating? If the thread has a protective coating over the outer metallic layer, the thread will run better and with less friction. An outer coating also protects against fraying and shredding.

Superior claim that this beautiful metallic thread is the best in the world. A big claim, which Superior back up with a guarantee, the only thread company in the world that does so.

Available on 500yds and 1090yds mini cones for extra value, the thread is a 40wt, which is the standard weight of thread and the recommended Needle is a Topstitch Size 90/14 with top tension reduced down to '1'
