Thread Consumption

The needed quantity of thread per embroidery color in a design. The average calculation is of 5m upper thread and approx. 3m under thread per 1.000 stitches. This consumption depends however on various factors, such as on the stitch length or stitch types used in the design. Refer also to MADEIRA's Color Definition Package, which allows an approx. estimation of the thread quantity per color which is needed for a design.
