Janome Bobbin Thread 1600M White
100% polyester thread #90 (2 cord)
What is Bobbin Fill? Quite simply, it’s a lightweight thread that you wind on to your bobbin. You use this thread when using an embroidery thread for embroidery or decorative stitches.
Embroidery thread has a high sheen which defines it from a regular sewing thread. As embroidery is generally dense, and there are lots of stitches involved, you generally will use more thread. Due to the expense and texture of embroidery thread, you need to substitute the bobbin thread with something that keeps your tensions balanced, is soft to touch, and allows the shape of your embroidery design to take place and form, giving you that real 4D effect.
When stitching an embroidery design, you would usually use bobbin fill for the best result, however, you can use the same embroidery thread top and bottom for single coloured designs to match your fabric or when embroidering names on towels for that professional finish. But continually using embroidery thread as a bobbin thread, is not very cost effective plus you may not achieve the finish you wanted.
Unlike regular threads and other bobbin fills, Janome Bobbin Fill is a 90 weight polyester thread. The red dot bobbin cases in Janome’s machine embroidery range are all tensioned for Janome bobbin fill, therefore achieving optimal tension when stitching embroidery designs. Using different brands of bobbin fill in the red dot bobbin case may cause stitching and tension issues. Many Janome embroidery models have a 2nd bobbin case with a yellow dot – use this bobbin case with other brands of bobbin fill (non-Janome brand) and adjust the tension to suit.
