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%.

I am looking at the bfc white bobbin thread. I asked how much on a spool. I was told 1000 meters for ^6.95. But, on the web site, it seems there is 5000 meters on a spool. Which is right? love your thread.

Hi Sue - Our regular thread is 1000m, but yes, the bobbin thread is 5000m. Sorry for the confusion!
Thank you - Suz

I have been using Deco-Bob bobbin thread made by wonderfil. I use BFC embroidery thread for colors. Is your bobbin thread finer than your regular thread? Thanks
