Madeira Supertwist Metallic Threads
Unique to the industry, Madeira’s spectacular Supertwist metallic threads are designed, developed and produced to the highest standards by Madeira owned Madeira companies. Madeira’s Supertwist metallic threads take you into a world of creativity and innovation.
Exclusive to Madeira, Supertwist is a sparkling metalized thread in iridescent tones, dazzling jewel and opal shades, plus an amazing selection of multi colors. New to the range are pastel-colored crystal hues, subtle and transparent, yet shimmering and stylish. The very particular twist of Supertwist and its fine finish, allow embroidery at highest speeds with no thread breaks on the most difficult material.
Leslie has used Supertwist metallic thread exclusively for a number of years and she has been very satisfied with the way it sews out, how it shimmers and how much it enhances design work. The problem with metallic thread is how it is made and that is why many sewers have problems with its use. Madeira Supertwist has been specifically designed for the newer high speed embroidery machines and yet it works beautifully on any machine and is beautiful in decorative stitching as well.
