Sylko Metallic

A beautiful, metallised embroidery thread

Coats Sylko Metallic is a highly engineered composite thread for machine embroidery and decorative sewing. Its high tenacity, nylon core brings strength during sewing and durability in your final sewn product. It combines superior luster with trouble-free sewing making it popular amongst the world's best embroiderers, delivering outstanding performance and luxurious embellishment.

Sylko Metallic has a pure silver coating which gives you the brilliant sheen unique to precious metals. The lubricated finish enables it to sew smoothly even on high-speed machines, and a unique after-treatment prevents "pigtailing" during embroidery. This helps to prevent thread breakage while having a positive impact on productivity. It also features a protective metallic foil which maintains the thread's lustre during sewing.

This highly engineered composite thread is intended for machine embroidery and decorative seams. It can also be used in the top spreader of coverseams for a metallic effect.
