Luminous thread – Visible at all times

You don’t really need fluorescent strips to be seen in the dark. Luminous thread also has this useful property. Sew your child a nice jacket or trousers with this effective thread so that you don’t have to worry when they come home in the dark. But the W6 luminous thread can be used for many other purposes. Whether for Halloween, a child's birthday party or as a unique effect at the disco: you will definitely be seen!

Create extraordinary special effects in the dark with luminous thread

The high-quality W6 luminous thread is made of phosphorescent material, to allow your seams to light up. It stores up light and reflects it when it’s dark. The luminescence depends on the intensity of the light action. You’ll be delighted about the strong effect of the luminous colours.

Just like our other threads, the luminous thread is suitable for embroidery and sewing. It is tear-resistant, abrasion-resistant and robust. The high thread quality prevents lint – your sewing machine and washing machine will thank you.

Before placing your order, please think about the potential general colour deviations. Every screen also displays colours differently. If you would like to be completely sure that you’ve chosen the correct colour tone, we recommend using the W6 colour card. As well as 391 colours, you will also find an overview of our unusual options such as luminous thread, neon thread or multi-coloured thread.

Luminous thread is easiest to work with if you are working in the ideal sewing conditions. Pull the accompanying net over the spool so that the thread runs smoothly. As lower thread you can use the white W6 embroidery thread. A W6 titanium needle size 90 will make sewing and embroidering a comfortable experience. Before you start the actual sewing process, check the tension of the upper and lower threads. Placing stabiliser underneath will support your luminous work. For a neat result, work at a moderate sewing and embroidering speed.
