Hemingworth thread is a trilobal high quality, poly-select, 40 weight thread, wound with 1000 meter per spool.


Quality embroidery depends on thread that is strong, vibrant, colorfast, and consistent. That's what makes Hemingworth Thread so remarkable.


For decades, embroiderers have faced the challenge of effectively storing embroidery thread, and as any embroiderer can attest, unraveling and untangling are all too familiar and frustrating problems. Hemingworth's patented protective cap solves these problems. It preserves thread quality by blocking dust, oil and UV rays. It also makes the thread easy to handle and store. The removable stopper traps the thread tail, preventing unraveling and tangling during storage.


While the thread is being used, the opening at the top of the cap provides a smooth, easy thread feed from any direction, decreasing snagging and thread breaks. As your thread consistently feeds from the spool to the machine without tangling, snagging, or unraveling, your embroidery process will become streamlined and pleasant, allowing you to create lasting works of arts that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

I accidentally threw away the stoppers on my first eight spools. Is there a way to get more?

Hi, Lindsey. I'm sorry for your trouble. As a courtesy, I am having some stoppers shipped to you at no additional cost. Have a great day.

Hi, Lisa. I am glad you have found Hemingworth and enjoying your threads!

Be aware that metallic threads in general can be tricky to use. A few tips:

1) Try slowing down your machine. This helps in giving your thread time to sort out any kinks, etc. (Aim for 600 – 750 spm.)
2), Make sure you are using a new, quality embroidery needle. (As an aside, popular embroidery design Lindee Goodall says that she has found that despite their name, metallic needles do not work well with metallic threads.)
3) Try loosening your tensions slightly.
4) Make sure your machine is clean, with no rough spots that will cause the metallic threads to catch.
5) Test your design. Some designs are better than others for use with metallics. It's best to pre-test to make sure you're not going to have lots of breaks.
6) Purchase a product such as the Control-a-Twist Thread Guide. This will help sort out kinks by giving your thread a longer thread path.

I hope this helps!

I have also tried several brands and prefer Hemingworth. It is not only beautiful thread and the colors are beautiful but it is also a great price. I am so glad I can still order it.

I wish too I had only Hemingworth thread. The store close to me quit selling it and promotes another brand. I have trouble with that brand and I am so glad I found this site to order from. The clear case around the spools is just so neat. Thanks, Hemingworth.

this is just a comment in case anyone is interested. I have worked with 5 different thread lines and by far Hemmingworth Threads are my favorite. Very rarely do the threads break or unravel and the coned cover really does a couple of things. First, it keeps your thread clean from lint and oils in the home from cooking or anything else. Next that cone allows the thread to be fed out of the top smoothly and tangle free. Third, it makes it extremely easy to close and tie up the loose end when finished. My dealer really tried to get me into another brand and I must say I wasted money. I wish I'd learned about Hemmingworth early as I'd have saved about 700.00 worth of thread that's in an odd ball drawer and a lot of headaches!

Just my two cents but I won't use anything else!

Thanks for the question, Dot. I have yet to meet a customer that does't love Hemingworth thread. If you want to see a video demonstration, here's a link:
