Our popular FS Metallics feature a strong textured polyester filament core with a metallized polyester foil wrap. Madeira offers FS Metallics in 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 20 and 15 weights for high speed embroidery and decorative sewing.
FS #50 is capable of spectacular shading and letters down to 4 mm high, just perfect for small lettering, fine monograms and filigree embroidery. FS #50 can also be substituted in place of standard 40 weight thread in most designs. FS #45 has excellent value due to the more economical aluminum coating, yet retains the strong and durable construction of the thread. A reduction of the metallised wrapping allows the triobal polyester core to gleam, creating a two color antique glitter effect. FS #40 is designed for use on the most challenging materials. The combination of a razor-thin Polyamide core and its twist construction produces top quality and reliable working properties. FS #35 is a versatile metallic thread of smooth structure which ensures trouble-free stitching at top speeds. FS #30 is the most abrasion resistant metallic thread in the industry. A true specialty thread developed for outdoor exposure, stone washing, chlorine and bleaching, plus harsh laundering at temperatures up to 203°F. FS #20 is an elegant soft metallic thread made from velvety spun rayon wrapped by an extra fine metallised foil. It is exceptionally gentle to the skin. FS #15's three-ply construction allows for absolute durability for hard-wearing seams. Its extremely high tensile strength produces trouble-free sewing on denim, sports goods and fashion items.
