Thread Nets

User avatar
JunkQueen | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Today as I neatened up *several* spools of thread and secured it, I’ve finally decided I must get thread net so I can quit wasting time doing this when the tape comes loose again, as I know it will….. as in “the best prediction of future behavior is past behavior.”

Anyhow, my question is, do you prefer the soft netting or the more rigid netting and why? The more rigid is a bit less expensive, although I would agree that neither is really costly. I think it really comes down to which is easier to work with.

    My personal preference is for the soft nets/socks when spools misbehave during machine embroidery.   And the stiffer version for storing "wild" spools.

    The softer version is a little more flexible and lets the thread feed without shifting on the spool.

      Thank you for the information. I was kinda thinking the soft net would let the thread feed better. I really appreciate your kind reply.
