Working with Burmilana #12 isn’t scary or difficult. Here’s a few helpful hints when working with Burmilana #12:
- Make sure your design is digitized for a #12 weight stitch density(.9 or 9).
- A #100/16 large eye needle is recommended. The elongated eye means thicker threads can pass through easier than through standard needle eyes.
- When using Burmilana, normal machine speeds need to be slightly reduced. Tension should also be adjusted to accommodate the difference in thickness and texture. Insider Tip: You may also want to try our Schmetz FHS (Fixed Hook Setting) Needles. They're designed for heavier weight threads and do not require you to adjust the timing on your machine.
- Remember to clean your bobbin case and rotary area out often. Canned air works great for this.
