Shop carefully as all Poly thread is NOT created equal!

Recently many embroidery enthusiasts are searching for Trilobal Poly Thread. Trilobal refers to the shape of the fibers that make up the thread. Standard poly fibers are round, but Trilobal fibers are like a three pointed star. This provides a lot more surface to reflect the light and result in thread that has a high sheen – often as much as rayon! It is also a stronger thread which means less thread breaks. Elongation (stretch) is also an important factor in choosing thread. Lower elongation percentages result in the reduction or elimination of puckering and looping problems. Lower elongation also allows you to decrease the tension on your machine. Some poly threads have a stretch factor up to 30%! Our new BFC poly Thread is made from Trilobal Poly fibers and has a very low elongation of 17%-20%.

    Please tell me when the thread sale ends. I am unable to find a definite date.
    I am delighted to learn you have thread. I have only admired your designs. In trying to learn your line, should I know what PLST, DKST, and VR means? I assume MD-medium, PALE-pale, DK-Dark, LT-Light. Thank you

    Hi Mary - the sale ends Tuesday, May 9 at 6:00 am Eastern Time.

    Yes - you have my abbreviations right! We carry a lot of shades of one color so I had to come up PLST - palest - Pale, DKST - Darkest and VR is variegated. Don't hesitate to ask if there are other ones in there that aren't obvious. :) I'm always here to help,

    Thank you - Suz

    How can you tell the size of the spools of thread?

    Hi Kate - they are grouped by Category - 1000m and 5000m. The 2468 is a 1000m. WE have 22 colors in 5000m - all the rest are 1000m.
    Thank you - Suz
