Special Effect Threads

Special projects sometimes require very special threads, and Madeira always has the answer.

To Order: Select from List shown Below

Choose from:
  • Wash-Away Basting Thread: Avoid the frustration of removing basting stitches. This water-soluble basting thread disappears with water or with heat from an iron or damp press. A perfect choice for basting: zippers, hems, gathers, pleats, pockets and for fitting, quilting and appliqué. Important notes: dissolves in water but not in dry cleaning solution. Must be stored in a dry place, such as a zip lock bag. Do not handle with wet hands. One spool per pack. 220 yd/200 m.
  • Glow-in-the-Dark Thread: Add an element of fun and safety to costumes, trick-or-treat bags or even jogging apparel. “Charge” the thread with natural or artificial light for just a few seconds. A new technology allows the glowing effect to last longer and hold up to repeated use much better than other glow-in-the-dark brands. Machine washable and dryable, this thread works well with all embroidery designs. One spool per pack. 110 yd/100 m.
  • Smocking Thread: A unique thread that reacts to heat. Use it for embroidery or decorative stitching, then slowly area over the stitched area. The thread shrinks but the fabric doesn’t, causing a controlled puckering. The resulting wrinkled effect is beautiful and uses for it are limitless. No special iron or needles are required and the embroidery can be sewn on any type of embroidery machine. One spool per pack. 220 yd/200 m.
