Classic Rayon is a staple in the Madeira embroidery thread catalog. Known for its strength and glossy finish, Classic Rayon is a great all-purpose thread. The soft finish of Classic Rayon embroidery thread makes it ideal for embroidering on children’s clothing, delicate fabrics like performance wear, and more! It is the most eco-friendly thread available, made from 100% viscose rayon and is Oeko-Tex® certified to be free from harmful substances. When running Classic Rayon, it is suggested to start with a tension of about 150 grams force (gF), but of course tension will vary by machine.
The standard 40 weight thread is ideal for almost every design. It is suggested to digitize Classic Rayon #40 with an average 4.0 density and to use a #65/9 or #75/11 size needle when stitching.
