How to choose embroidery thread

First of all, we need to choose the embroidery thread that suits us. There are many kinds of embroidery thread, common ones are wool thread, cotton thread, silk thread and so on. Wool yarn is good for thin and thick threads, cotton thread is good for medium-thin threads, and silk thread is good for very thin threads. At the same time, we also need to choose the color that suits our needs. It is recommended that beginners choose threads with fewer colors, which can reduce the difficulty of threading.

Branded embroidery threads are recommended first, and the best ones are embroidery thread factories, such as Simthread Embroidery Thread Factory, whose quality is guaranteed.

Embroidery Thread Threading Steps


1. Cut the thread

First, we need to cut the embroidery thread according to the required length. Generally, it is recommended that the length of the line should not exceed 1 meter, so as to avoid knotting or entanglement of the line.


2. Thread the thread through the eye of the needle

Next, we need to use the needle threader to thread the thread through the eye of the needle. The needle threader usually has two holes of different sizes. We need to choose the hole that fits the size of the thread, pass the thread through it, and then pull the two ends of the thread evenly.


3. Thread the needle through the fabric

Next, we need to thread the needle through the fabric. The length of the needle should be suitable for the thickness of the fabric, if the needle is too long, it will easily deform the fabric, if the needle is too short, it will be difficult to pass through the fabric.
