Madeira Specialist and Utility Threads
Madeira Bobbinfil, Glow-in-the-Dark and Smocking thread
Madeira manufactures a variety of utility and specialist threads such as Bobbinfil, Glow-in-the-Dark and Smocking thread. We can supply many of these threads though at present we have only the Bobbinfil on-line.
Madeira Bobbinfil is an ultra-fine polyester thread. It is ideal for the underthread when doing machine sewing or machine embroidery, and is strong enough it has become a standard choice for use in the bobbin for digitised machine embroidery. Madeira Bobbinfil is available in 2 colours, white and black, on 1500m spools.
Madeira Halloween Glow-In-The-Dark is a 'special effect' thread. It gets charged up under natural or artificial light and will then glow when the light goes away. It can be used to make fun children’s costumes and other items. It is also suitable for sports or work clothes and any other item that benefits from being seen at night. Glow-in-the-Dark is available in white on 100m spools.
Madeira Smocking thread is another 'special effect' thread, one that reacts to heat. Please note, it is not thread you would use to make the bodice for a smocked dress. Stitch your fabric using Madeira Smocking thread in the bobbin. Run a warm iron over the stitched fabric slowly and the thread will shrink under the heat, gathering up and creating a rippled or crinkled effect. Smocking thread is available in white on 200m spools.
