Madeira launches new cotton and acrylic blended embroidery thread

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-02-19 10:30:00 – LACONIA, N.H.

Madeira, leading manufacturers of high quality embroidery threads and accessories worldwide to the Decorated Apparel Market now launches a new embroidery thread that offers the rugged appearance of cotton with the durability of acrylic. Blend of 50 percent cotton and 50 percent acrylic.

Madeira’s new BurmilanaCo is a cousin to its popular Burmilana, the brand name for Madeira's finely spun wool blend embroidery thread, 50% wool and 50% Acrylic, perfect for high speed computerised embroidery, overlocking and decorative stitching.

The new BurmilanaCo is a 12 weight machine embroidery thread that offers a hand-embroidered look. Available in 72 colors, it is more economical than the wool blend, is easy to run and provides a beautiful, subtle stitch out. While 65 of its colors are solid, 7 are a soft, stylish mélange of related tones.

Madeira USA president Shirley Clark said that when they learned of the worldwide designers and decision makers that Madeira Germany has sent this new thread to, they now want to offer it to their US customers. The new embroidery thread is unique, bold, easy to run. For those who are fashion-minded, whether keeping up with trends or setting them, they will be extremely interested in seeing what this new specialty thread can produce.

With a natural, soft hand, BurmilanaCo is an excellent choice for chenille embroidery, chain stitch, fringing, decorative seams and other special effects. Due to its thicker weight, the use of a #100/16 needle is recommended, as well as slightly tightening the tension on the embroidery machine.

BurmilanaCo has been tested and cleared to be free from any harmful substances by the international Oeko-Tex organization, receiving a Class 1 rating, which clears the thread for use on baby clothes. Madeira’s production processes are strictly controlled under ISO 9001

Founded in Freiburg in 1919 as "Burkhardt & Schmidt Garnfabrik", the company quickly made a name for itself as a producer of top quality embroidery threads, with a combination of traditional values and the innovative prowess of the company's founders forming the basis for success. In 1975, "Burkhardt & Schmidt Garnfabrik" was renamed as MADEIRA. Today, MADEIRA , with its many subsidiaries all around the world and its international sales logistics, is one of the leading companies in the industry.
