Sulky Rayon Thread

Add Pizazz to every project where you are going to see thread on top!

Sulky 40 wt. (Lighter) Rayon Decorative Thread

Sulky 40 wt. comes in 388 colors. It is a light weight, but exceptionally strong, silky rayon thread. It is colorfast, both washable and dry cleanable. It is recommended that no bleach or whitening agents be used when laundering. While it is a utilitarian weight that works very well in all decorative applications, it is the preferred thread for “free-motion” machine embroidery as well as computerized embroidery. Most computer embroidery designs are digitized for Sulky 40 wt. Rayon Thread. A size12/80 machine needle is most commonly used with Sulky 40 wt. Rayon, unless the thickness of the fabric/stabilizer calls for a 14/90. It can also be used in the bobbin when working on projects where having the same color bobbin thread as top thread is important. Normally for embroidery work, Sulky Bobbin Thread is most widely used in the bobbin in both white or black. Note: 40 wt. snap-spools have black printing on the spool.

Sulky 30 wt. (Heavier) Rayon Decorative Thread Sulky 30 wt. comes in 102 solid colors and 54 variegated and multi-colors, which are indicated by a R30 on the color chart. It is 1/3 heavier than 40 wt. and is ideal for top-stitching, quilting, satin stitch decorative stitches (fills them in completely) and it is an exceptionally strong, silky rayon thread. When enlarging computerized designs, 30 wt, will fill them in more completely than 40 wt. It is colorfast, both washable and dry cleanable. It is recommended that no bleach or whitening agents be used when laundering. A size 14/90 machine needle is most commonly used with Sulky 30 wt. Rayon. Where having the same color bobbin thread as top thread is important, use a matching Sulky 40 wt. thread in the bobbin. Normally for embroidery work, Sulky Bobbin Thread is most widely used in the bobbin in both white or black. Note: 30 wt. Snap-spools have red writing on the spools.
