Taster Packs

What are Barnyarns Taster Packs? Barnyarns offers a wide range of threads for nearly every application. The thread weights, characteristics, finish and colour all vary so we have assembled a range of 'Taster Packs' which contain a selection of threads for experimental purposes. Taster packs are offered at a high discount with a choice of three colour variations which are Gold & Silver, Green or Blue. This is a very good, low cost way to try out new threads.

A low quality thread is the cause of 50% of your frustration. If you use a budget, low quality thread, you really cannot expect your expensive machine to compensate. Your machine cannot make a poor quality thread any better, it may struggle on, you may struggle on but ultimately your blood will boil. Start with a quality thread as you would a quality fabric that is worthy of your machine and your project. I doesn’t make sense to spend thousands on your machine and a couple of pounds on budget thread.

The higher the quality of the thread, the less special handling will be required. Poor quality thread will break easily because it just does not have the basic ingredient required, good quality raw material.

Look for the best brands of threads and be open minded and willing to try new ones. Make sure when you are selecting a thread that the one you select is intended for your application. For example, do not choose a decorative embroidery thread to sew garments together! It will not work, it will break and you will be disappointed, but it will not be the fault of the thread!
