The only matte embroidery thread in weight 30 - Frosted Matt 30

Thick and voluminous, yet lint-free and easy to process on your machine. Frosted Matt 30 weight thread is made for eye-catching dimensional embroidery designs or to fill large surfaces. You benefit from a higher stitch density, saving you thread when used for fillings or backgrounds. Works well to cover 3D foam or for creating volume with underlay stitches. Suitable for decorative stitching and sewing. Provides outstanding effects on denim, shoes, accessories, street wear, outdoor garments and many more.     

Original fine matte embroidery thread since 2007 - Frosted Matt 40

The original thin dtex 180 version of Frosted Matt looks optically like a 40-weight thread (due to its construction and the fact that it does not reflect light) but can be embroidered like a 55-60 weight thread. The small needles required lead to only small holes in the fabric during embroidery, making it suitable for thin fabrics. Use it for fine lettering, sharp contours, small details, to create contrast in thread-mix designs or just as your creative heart tells you.

How to get the best results with Frosted Matt

Frosted Matt is a round, continuous-filament polyester thread with a high colour-pigment density, providing a slightly fluorescent look. That means the thread appears larger than it really is. Always use the smallest needle possible. A thread tension slightly higher than normal polyester is recommended. Stitch density according to dtex values - see product specifications.

True colours make Frosted Matt a unique embroidery thread

Frosted matt has been offering an entirely new embroidery experience for the last 10 years. It's cool but pleasant to the touch, offers a soft feel and a large number of beautiful truly matte colours, helping you to create amazing effects and designs. Inspired by the original colours you might encounter during the Holi festival in India, our developers have created this eye-catching thread with a special filament that absorbs the light instead of reflecting it as its basis. It offers you something unique, stylish, nonconformist and timeless in the world of embroidery: a true and authentic colour experience.
