Mettler Poly Sheen, Color 2560 Azalea, 800 m spool

From Amann-Mettler:

Robust, decorative and colorfast: with POLY SHEEN you are buying the embroidery hero among Mettler’s sewing threads. The shiny sewing thread is not only wonderful to embroider with but can also be used universally thanks to its extra strong and abrasion resistant properties. These properties are particularly important on heavily strained textiles such as sports and leisure wear, denim, terry cloth, children's, leather and work wear. Colorful decorative seams work also very well with the decorative sewing thread.

The secret of its versatility lies in its composition: the trilobal filament cross-section of the sewing thread ensures a larger surface and thus a higher light reflection than with conventional embroidery and decorative sewing threads. The result is a particularly beautiful sheen, which is accompanied by intense color brilliance. The luminosity of the color - even after bleaching with chlorine - remains for years.

Available in up to 435 colors and featuring two size(s). Note: Not all products have worldwide availability.

    Product Features:
  • Excellent sheen thanks to the trilobal thread cross-section - Due to its trilobal quality, POLY SHEEN, unlike conventional embroidery and decorative sewing threads, has a much larger surface for light reflection and is therefore particularly shiny.

Excellent embroidery features and sewability without thread breakage are guaranteed. The sewing thread is suitable for sewing and embroidery machines: it can be processed with state-of-the-art, powerful machines without any problems.
  • Extremely high abrasion resistance - Gives embroidery or decorative seams an exceptionally long lifespan. The sheen is preserved.
  • A color selection that leaves no wishes unfulfilled - Thanks to a selection of 435 colors, there are no limits to creativity.
