The “Poly Sparkle” fancy yarn will also be on show. Varied design options for home textiles or clothing fabrics are particularly in demand in the fashion industry. With fancy yarns, striking accents can be created in stiching even without elaborate patterns.

“Poly Sparkle” combines two polyester threads with a metallic thread. The polyester yarn used ensures durability and softness at the same time. The sparkle and glitter is provided by the color spectrum of the metallic yarn used. This mix of yarn qualities in different colors makes a spectrum of color combinations possible. The metallic effect yarn is available in 54 colors, consists of 78% polyester and 22% polyamide and is offered in a weight of 30. It is not chlorine-resistant, but can be washed at 40 °C and can be dried and ironed at a low temperature.

The thread is easy to work with, but should be digitized with a slightly larger stitch distance, as a low density results in a very even embroidery pattern. According to the company, the thread combines a metallic look with a soft feel and is designed to look great in any embroidery.
