Madeira's polyester embroidery thread is known as Madeira Polyneon.

Polyneon is designed to run at the high speeds demanded by todays industrial and home machines and provides a high sheen finish when embroidered.

Madeira PolyNeon is suitable for any type of machine embroidery and quilting.  Excellent for work wear, sports wear and swimwear. Madeira PolyNeon is also highly recommended for stonewashing and for special use on childrenswear.
