Embroidered towels have an undeniable allure that effortlessly infuses a touch of class into any space. While the idea of embroidering towels might conjure images of meticulous seamstresses toiling away, the process is far more straightforward and more rewarding than one might think. With the exquisite Border Oak and Acorns Machine Embroidery Design, available in four sizes, you can elevate your towels to new heights of elegance and style. In this guide, we'll walk you through embroidering on terry towels, from selecting the suitable stabilizers and needles to achieving the perfect embroidery speed.
Terry towels are a household staple known for their exceptional absorbency and softness. These towels are woven with looped fibres that enhance their ability to soak moisture, making them ideal for baths and hand towels. Their composition typically consists of natural fibres like cotton, bamboo, or both. The weight of terry towels is measured in grams per square meter (GSM), indicating their thickness and quality. A higher GSM signifies a denser, more absorbent towel.
1. Stabilizers: Stabilizers are integral to successful machine embroidery, especially on textured surfaces like terry towels. For the bottom layer, use a tear-away stabilizer to provide foundational support. On top, opt for a water-soluble or heat-away stabilizer. These prevent the embroidery thread from sinking into the towel's loops and ensure a crisp, defined design.
2. Needles: Select a needle suitable for the weight of the towel and the embroidery design. A size 11 or 75/11 embroidery needle is generally adequate for terry towels. Ensure your needle is sharp and in good condition to prevent thread breakage.
1. Hooping: Hooping is a crucial step that affects the overall quality of your embroidery. Hoop the towel and stabilizer together, ensuring the fabric is taut but not distorted. This creates an even surface for embroidery.
2. Design Placement: Mark the centre of your desired embroidery area on the towel. Align this with the machine's needle to ensure accurate placement of the design. To ensure accurate design placement, utilize our color chart which is provided with all of our designs. Simply print it out using your printer.
3. Thread and Design Selection: Choose high-quality embroidery thread that complements your design and towel colour. The Border Oak and Acorns Machine Embroidery Design offers four sizes to suit your preference, making it versatile for various towel dimensions.
4. Embroidery Speed: Adjust your machine's embroidery speed to a moderate setting. Too high a speed may lead to thread tension issues, while too slow can cause thread buildup.
For machine embroidery on terry towels, it's recommended to use high-quality and durable threads that will ensure the embroidery's longevity and consider the texture of the terry cloth. Here are some recommendations for thread selection:
1. Cotton Threads: Cotton threads are ideal for terry towels as they are natural and breathable. Cotton absorbs moisture well, which is essential for towels. Choose threads designed explicitly for embroidery, as they will resist washing and wear.
2. Polyester Threads: Polyester threads are also suitable for embroidering on terry towels, as they are strong and resist fading and moisture. They can be instrumental if the towels are frequently used and washed.
3. Blended Fiber Materials: Some threads can be made from a blend of cotton and polyester or other materials. These threads can provide a balance between strength and moisture absorption.
4. Thread Thickness: Choose a medium or thin thread thickness to ensure the embroidery doesn't create excessive bulk on the terry cloth's surface. Thick threads might get caught in the terry cloth loops and reduce the embroidery quality.
5. Color Scheme: When selecting thread colours, consider the colour of the towel and the embroidery design. The thread should contrast nicely with the towel fabric and accentuate the design details.
When choosing threads, also consider the recommendations and reviews from thread manufacturers. The lines must be specifically designed for machine embroidery and consider the specifics of working with terry fabric. With the proper thread selection, embroidery on terry towels will be beautiful, long-lasting, and resistant to everyday use and washing.
1. Careful Observation: Keep a close watch on your machine as it embroiders. Ensure the thread doesn't snag or tangle and that the design aligns well.
2. Post-Embroidery Finishing: Once the design is complete, carefully remove the excess stabilizer. Tear away the tear-away stabilizer and dissolve the water-soluble or heat-away stabilizer as per the manufacturer's instructions.
