Getting Ready for Summer with Frosted Matt

The longer daylight hours of summer can be harsh on embroidery that's exposed - unless you're running Madeira's Frosted Matt!

If you didn't already know about our Frosted Matt 40 weight thread, it's the only truly matte finish polyester embroidery thread on the market. It contains a ceramic ingredient that provides extreme color fastness, making it extremely resistant to fading from sunlight.

Its matte finish gives embroidery enhanced clarity, making it great for fine lettering and details. Also works well with shading and tone on tone affects. Being a polyester thread, it can withstand commercial laundering.

Frosted Matt is a general use 40 weight thread and runs similar to our other 40 weight threads, however you should keep in mind the following:
  • Frosted Matt is a #40 weight thread, but slightly thinner than a normal #40 weight so it is recommended when filling in large areas that you adjust the density.
  • For best results digitizing for Frosted Matt, set the punch parameter to 3.5 or .35 to maximum 4.0 or .40 stitch density.
  • A #65/9 or #75/11 needle is recommended.
