Classic Rayon 40 Thread
Madeira Classic Rayon 40 is a beautiful, high quality thread with exceptionally high sheen, an ideal choice for detailed digitised designs, monogramming, logos and free-motion hand-guided machine embroidery.
Madeira Rayon 40 is the world's leading machine embroidery thread. Designers love Madeira Rayon because of its natural glossy finish; machinists love the high production rate afforded by its flexibility and high tensile strength. Fewer thread breakages means less time taken with rethreading.
Matched to Pantone colours, under license with Pantone Inc., Madeira Classic Rayon 40 is the standard thread for good embroidery and for digitised machines.
