Madeira Introduces Cotton Blend Embroidery Thread

Laconia, N.H.-based Madeira USA Ltd. has introduced BurmilanaCo, a 50-percent cotton/50-percent acrylic embroidery thread. The 12-weight thread is available in 72 colors and offers a more hand-embroidered look than other machine embroidery threads. According to the company, the thread has a natural, soft hand, and works well for chenille embroidery, chain stitch, fringing, decorative seams and other special effects. The thread received a Class 1 rating from the Switzerland-based Oeko-Tex Association, which means it may be used on baby clothing.
