Madeira Lana No. 12 is finely spun 50% wool/50% acrylic embroidery thread that comes in 10 variegated colors for wonderfully unique effects in computerized embroidery, serging, quilting, bobbin work, free motion embroidery, couching and hand embroidery. Lana has the characteristics and appearance of pure wool and the strength of acrylic. A larger eye size 100/16 needle helps to accommodate the thickness of Lana. And, you can create the unique Lana soft, fluffy look by gently brushing your finished design with a Lana brush. Both items are available in the Madeira Accessories section.
A typical embroidery design contains 6,000 stitches. This means each 220 yard/200 m Smart Spool with its 40,000 stitches per spool will produce 40 designs on average. That's plenty of thread for most home embroiderers. In fact, with the Smart Spool size, you can afford to buy thread more often and experiment with new colors and textures.
