Available in 108 colours, Polyneon Green offers a strong, shiny thread made from 100% recycled polyester spun from recycled plastic bottles, explains the thread manufacturer. “Derived from post-consumer waste, the standard weight 40 thread provides high-quality industrial embroideries, and can be used for workwear, sportswear, jeans, shoes and more.” Sensa Green is a “sensationally soft”, natural innovation constructed from 100% lyocell fibres, which are made from sustainable wood and pulp from renewable forest sources, adds Madeira. “It’s the first coloured lyocell embroidery thread on the market, available in 144 beautiful shades. “Produced using a closed-loop process, the clean production reclaims 99% of the organic solvents and water used in the process. “Spun and dyed exclusively in Germany, Sensa Green has a low-carbon impact due to shorter transportation cycles, and is certainly one of the most sustainable threads on the market.” On the Melco EMT16X, a bobbin change or thread break doesn’t require all the other heads to stop sewing Madeira’s new eco-friendly Sensa Green embroidery thread is made from 100% lyocell fibres
