Sulky 40 wt is a light weight, but exceptionally strong, silky rayon thread. It is colorfast, both washable and dry cleanable. It is recommended that no bleach or whitening agents be used when laundering. While it is a utilitarian weight that works very well in all decorative applications, it is the preferred thread for "free-motion" machine embroidery as well as computerized embroidery. Most computer embroidery designs are digitized for 40 wt thread.
A size 12/80 machine needle is most commonly used with Sulky 40 wt Rayon, unless the thickness of the fabric/stabilizer calls for a 14/90. It can also be used in the bobbin when working on projects where having the same color bobbin thread as top thread is important. Normally for embroidery work, white or black bobbin thread is used in the bobbin.
