For Sale - Madeira Lana threads
« on: April 06, 2021, 15:57:49 PM »
I have decided that as I'm most unlikely to use these, they should be given the chance to go to a better home.   [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

I have available 19 spools of Madeira Lana thread, 50% wool/50% acrylic, 200m on each. Also included is an unused pack of 5 machine needles especially for this thread.
The black spool is unused, the remaining ones have had between 5 and 30 turns of thread removed.

There are embroidery designs available that have been specifically digitised for use with this thread which is thicker than the usual rayon or polyester thread that we use. The completed animal designs can be lightly brushed to look more realistic.
Colours are:-
Top row
3881 Grey
3892 Black
3897 Dk Red
3844 Beige
3845 Pale Stone
3601 White
Middle row
3837 Dk Grey
3803 Orange
3601 White ( again)
3887 Mid Brown
3888Palest Pink
3840 Tan
Bottom row
3724 Yellow
3686 Silver Grey
3831 Dk Brown
3881 Grey (again)
3839 Pale Green
3805 Rusty Red

variegated thread 3390 - shades of yellow/gold/cream.

I will include, if I can locate it, a CD of suitable designs- mainly cats/dogs etc
These threads are sold by Barnyarns for £3.85 and the needles £4.85 , I am asking for £40 including UK postage

These are for Embroidery machines ??

They look pretty thick compared to the Rayons ?

Embroidery Library has some patterns that are specifically designed for thicker threads.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

As I said, " these threads are thicker than the usual rayon or polyester threads that we use". The designs for these  threads are especially digitised to make use of the thicker thread.

however I used them for hand embroidery on wool felt, where they are very effective.

Hello-

Are these the Lana threads that, after they are stitched they can be brushed to get "fluffy"?

Thanks for thinking of me @Iminei but if i dare buy another reel of cotton I’ll be in the divorce courts  :laughing: i have so much cotton including the DMC chest with every colour going, as you can guess I’m a hoarder especially when it comes to craft stuff.

So right @Iminei , i was sorting out my craft stuff the other day and i have so much that it was between wardrobe space for clothes or craft stuff, well easy decision for me, one wardrobe of clothes has now been discarded and turned in to more storage space.
