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%.

    My babylock ellegante machine is having issues with the 2168-white thread. The thread keeps breaking, even with needle change, design change, fabric change. Is there something I am missing to use this thread? I lowered my emb speed, thread breaks after a few stitches no matter what I try. In contrast, my other brand poly thread worked fine. I like your threads but need help to understand why I am having issues. Thank you

    Hi Paula- I am sorry for the difficulties- there is a possibility was just a bad cone that slipped by in manufacturing as is the first time the issue has come up- I will send you a new cone and hopefully there will not be any problems-
    Thank you
    Fred
