Polystar embroidery thread is a two-ply polyester embroidery thread that is steadfast and beautiful at the same time. Polystar embroidery thread also will not lose it’s color if bleached, something rayon is known for doing.

Polystar makes both white and black bobbin thread that works unbelievably well in every machine. All of the bobbins are plastic and are made to last, unlike sideless or cardboard bobbins. Polystar bobbins are inexpensive and come in grosses of 144, giving you superior prewound bobbins at a wonderful price point.
What kind of spool does the Polystar Embroidery Thread Use and how much thread is on each spool? Polystar Embroidery Thread is wound on a mini-king spool, which is compatible with almost every embroidery machine (even if you have an embroidery machine that uses a cartridge system such as the Brother SE-270D). 1,000 meters (1,100 yards) of Polystar’s stunning embroidery thread is wound on each spool lasting you design after design after design. Believe it or not, there is enough thread to cover 11 Football Fields in one spool of Polystar Embroidery Thread!
How do I know what color thread I am using? On every spool of Polystar thread the color number and the color name are printed on the bottom (an example being Pumpkin), this way you can easily identify what color you are using when you are embroidering.
What sets are available for Polystar Embroidery Thread? Polystar makes a set of 61 different colors that are vibrant and has beautiful colors ranging from Deep Rose to Olive Green. The Polystar 61 set also includes a sturdy, simply amazing thread box that houses each thread snug in it’s own individual compartment, so you never have threads lost or rattling around. The box even has a magnetic flap to ensure that your box is closed. Polystar also makes a country color set which contains 42 beautiful pastel-like colors, which are great for projects that are using country type designs or for designs that do not require the vibrancy of the 61 color set. In addition, Polystar also makes another set called the Nick colors, which are super-vibrant, and are great for any project that needs some extra flare or colors that pop out at you when embroidered.
