Embroidery threads are made of high-quality natural fibers or chemical fibers by spinning.
  Silk embroidery thread is made of real silk or rayon, and is mostly used for silk and satin embroidery. The embroidery is bright in color and dazzling. Wool embroidery thread is made of wool or wool blended yarn. It is generally embroidered on woolen, hemp fabrics and wool sweaters. The embroidery is soft in color, soft in texture and full of three-dimensional effect. , not washable. Cotton embroidery thread is made of combed cotton yarn, with high strength, uniform evenness, bright color, complete color spectrum, good luster, light resistance, washing resistance, no lint, embroidered on cotton, linen, man-made fiber fabrics, beautiful and generous, The application is more extensive. Cotton embroidery thread in my country is divided into fine thread and coarse thread. Thick branches can only be embroidered by hand, saving labor and high efficiency, but the embroidery surface is rough.
  Types of Embroidery Threads
  (1) Pure cotton fine embroidery thread Pure cotton fine embroidery thread is made of a single yarn and twisted together. There are about 40 color systems, and each color system has about 6 to 9 color levels from light to dark. It can be used in ply. When embroidering the fine cotton thread on the rougher base fabric, you should pay attention to using ply-ply embroidery, otherwise the embroidered pattern will be easy to foam and expose the base fabric, which will not be smooth. (2) Pure cotton thick embroidery thread Pure cotton thick embroidery thread is made up of 3 yarns that are twisted together, with fewer colors, and each color has 3 to 5 color levels. Root ply used. Suitable for embroidery on hemp and flannel.
  (3) Paired thread Paired thread is mostly imported embroidery thread, which is composed of 6 strands. The thread itself is shiny and the color is very elegant. Each color system contains gray components, such as gray green, gray powder, gray blue and so on. The ply-joint imported thread is most suitable for Naga painting, velvet embroidery and so on.
  (4) Machine embroidery thread Machine embroidery thread, as the name suggests, is the thread used on the sewing machine. The texture is extremely tough and strong, and it is not easy to break the strands. This kind of thread is not suitable for hand embroidery, because it contains talc and pulp, hand embroidery is easy to tie knots, the affinity between embroidery thread and cloth is poor, and the embroidery thread is not easy to be leveled during embroidery.
  (5) Silk thread Silk thread is a unique embroidery thread in southern my country, just like our ink painting, only available in China. Silk thread is suitable for embroidery on soft base fabrics such as satin and silk, as well as double-sided embroidery on glass silk yarn. The animal is embroidered with silk thread, and its unique luster is excellent for expressing the fur of the animal.
  (6) Wool yarn is generally suitable for Na-yarn embroidery. Note that embroidery on thick fabrics should use thick twisted or plied thread.
  (7) Gold and silver threads Gold and silver threads are generally suitable for pan gold embroidery and diamond embroidery. Due to the brittle texture of gold and silver thread, it is not suitable for embroidery with more complicated stitches.
  (8) Ribbon Ribbon is a very fine colored ribbon woven by machine. It is suitable for use on thicker and thicker base fabrics, and can also be mixed with thick embroidery threads, and the effect is very good. If coupled with beaded embroidery and sequin embroidery, the picture effect will be more colorful.
  (9) Polyester Embroidery Thread Polyester embroidery thread is characterized by being able to withstand chemical substances and washing clothes frequently to reduce fading and discoloration of clothes. Therefore, many hotel uniforms, as well as some stone-ground blue jeans, sportswear or some children Clothing is made of polyester yarn. In general, polyester thread is tougher and stronger than rayon embroidery thread. When doing machine embroidery, the polyester thread can withstand the higher tension of the embroidery machine, which can make the machine run faster; and its fire resistance is very high, even if the polyester is close to the flame, it is not easy to catch fire. The thread of polyester yarn is not as stable as rayon, because it is composed of polyester fiber yarn, so it will be more elastic. We can cut a rayon thread to test, pull the thread a little harder, and then let go, we will find that the embroidery thread does not shrink much; on the contrary, pull the polyester thread in the same way, once it is released, the polyester thread will To restore the original length, there is a chance that the flower will wrinkle, so it needs to be more precise in the adjustment of the embroidery thread tension setting.
  (10) Rayon embroidery thread The difference in properties between rayon embroidery thread and polyester embroidery thread is very small. The advantage of the former is that it has more color choices and is closer to nature. In addition, the stability of rayon is higher than that of polyester thread, even if it passes through the embroidery machine. The movement and pulling, it will not shrink significantly.
