Embroidery threads MADEIRA

Embroidery threads MADEIRA Classic

100% natural rayon viscose machine embroidery thread with exceptional high sheen for sophisticated embroidery work. Made from the highest quality raw materials to ensure unsurpassed tensile strength. Soft and flexible offering outstanding productivity capabilities, perfect for all embellishment styles across all market sectors.


Four different thicknesses have been developed to help obtain the best results and performance for any application. Global standard No.40, lighter No.60 for small lettering and fine details, heavier No.30 ideal for knitwear and larger designs, then the thickest No.12 for a decorative hand stitched look.
Classic viscose threads are anti-static. This means that they do not build up static charge and can be used for the manufacture of anti-static garments. If Classic thread is to be used for anti-static purposes, we recommend conducting tests with the final garment, not just the individual components before production.
