MADEIRA TANNE -  30's  cotton - Being discontinued

This quality embroidery thread has quite a sheen for cotton - made from long staple Egyptian cotton and is double mercerised.  Fast-dyed to 95ºC.  Needle size 80.

Quilters - this is a quilting thread, the same as Madeira Cotona, but sold at a more economic price!  It is easy to use on the top of the machine and is ideal for heavy fabrics.  Recommended for use on the bobbin when the top thread is rayon, metallic or Burmilana.  Tassel-making  is foolproof with Tanne threads!  (See also Bourdon Cord).  Lacemakers  will find that Tanne makes up superbly without fluffing and that the lace has both body and a crisp finish but is not "hard". NB: Madeira is discontinuing this range - but we still have many colours left - if the colour you need is out of stock, please ask about the Cotty range of threads

MADEIRA  Burmilana No. 12  acrilan/wool  (70/30 or  50/50)

For MADEIRA's own Burmilana range shade charts on the Web, please click here. (And then click on the relevant colour chart for a full sized image.)

See Madeira "Burmilana" shade card 65.  One of the lesser-known threads, which can be used with great success, either on top of, or on the bobbin of, the sewing machine.  Its matt texture contrasts well with the shinier rayons and cottons giving that extra individuality to any piece of work!  Lovely to use for hand embroidery and tassels.

 NB: This make up is being phased out by Madeira so it is only available whilst stocks last. It is, however, being replaced by Lana - see next entry.

MADEIRA  Lana No. 12 acrilan/wool 50/50

One of the lesser-known threads, which can be used with great success, either on top of, or on the bobbin of, the sewing machine. Its matt texture contrasts well with the shinier rayons and cottons giving that extra individuality to any piece of work! Lovely to use for hand embroidery and tassels. Use a large eyed needle-size 100, Madeira does its own special needle. For added texture, brush after embroidering with a fine brush or the hook side of a piece of Velcro.
