The rayon made from viscose has a similar structure to cotton and therefore offers feel and texture resembling those of natural fibres. The threads are soft, smooth, skin-friendly and pleasant to touch. The embroidered elements are shown in brilliant, vivid colours with a beautiful luster. The flexibility of Classic threads allows you to embroider anywhere on the garment, in any direction and using diverse techniques.
From logos, interior textiles, sportswear and corporate fashion, to leather shoes, accessories and jeans, they easily and beautifully create the most intricate designs on all kinds of materials.
Viscose threads are also very gentle on the embroidery machine and run extremely smoothly. Because of the thread’s high lightfastness and resistance to washing temperatures of up to 95°C, the garments can be flexibly cleaned and keep their beauty over time.
Madeira's Classic range of threads offers a lot of flexibility during designing: they run smoothly, are productive and versatile, and have an appealing look and feel.
You can choose from 4 thicknesses that were developed to help obtain the best results and performance for any application. Make sure to choose a suitable needle size for each weight and work with a slightly lower thread tension than you would use for most polyester threads.
