Why would I want to use Sulky 30 wt. Rayon?
Anytime you want a heavier, denser fill-in, and a more visible thread, Sulky 30 wt. rayon thread should be your thread of choice. It is 1/3 thicker than 40 wt. thread, and 2/3 thicker than 50 wt. for greater visibility, depth and unique color interest. It is more forgiving for applique and decorative stitches. It is the favorite of quilters around the world because of its strength and the sheen of its natural fiber.
It is available in 156 luscious colors - 102 solid and 54 variegated and multi-colors on both a 180 yd. and 500 yd. snap spool.
Sulky 30 wt. rayon is frequently used as the background fill in embroidery designs when the digitizing is lightly done and a light colored design is being placed on a dark fabric or vice versa. The lighter Sulky 40 wt. rayon is preferred for all of the detail work.
