Natural Thread with a Matt Finish 

Product description 
COTTY consists of 100% long staple, high quality mercerized* Egyptian cotton with a matt finish. This thread has a uniquely soft, warm feel and pleases with its natural appearance. Natural threads work best on soft fabrics, cotton, linen, cord, felt and velvet. COTTY is available in size 30 for fine embroidery and seam applications or in size 12 for a coarser look, the typical handcrafted look.

The dye lots are continuously numbered by us and marked by a stamp on our cartons. Please take care that you always process embroidery threads of the same dye lot for one embroidery order.

*Mercerizing = Treatment of cotton with cold concentrated caustic soda under tension. The cotton acquires a new fine fiber structure. Due to the treatment with caustic soda, the cotton unwinds into an almost circular cross-section. Due to the changed light refraction, the gloss is increased. Dye uptake is improved and at the same time less dyestuff is needed. Tensile strength increases by 10 to 30 percent, abrasion resistance decreases by 20 - 30 percent. Shrinkage of mercerized cotton is not possible.

COTTY 12 - 100% cotton

  • Only use embroidery programs which are determined for such strong yarns with needle work character.
    Important: Few short stitches, low stitch density, few or no underlay stitches.
  • If you embroider on knitted fabrics, we recommend stabilising the knitwear before embroidering with our embroidery fleece STIFFY®. In case of high quality designs, we recommend using coated STIFFY® (type B) which can be ironed onto the fabric. The embroidery fleece can be easily removed after having embroidered.
  • For embroideries on coarse fabrics, SOLVY will prevent stitches from disappearing in the fabric, thus enhancing the special needlework touch.

The special tip!
After embroidering, roughing up - with FILAINE / COTTY 12
After embroidering, treat the areas of a motif that you would like to have a furry look with the special brush „FILAINE BRUSH“.
