Tips & Best Practice

for ‘Faux Chenille’ embroidery!


Burmilana wool blend embroidery thread creates an interesting texture and fills objects quickly. When paired with the correct stitch types, it creates the look and feel of Chenille without the need for expensive specialized attachments.

Burmilana thread is 3 x thicker than standard embroidery thread and comprises finely spun wool and acrylic fibers at a 50:50 ratio.

and machine maintenance are recommended.
