Twisting

The correct twisting of the embroidery thread is indispensable for a high quality as far as the resistance to breakage is concerned. Embroidery threads usually are made of two components (twists), which each have a S-turn. THe final twisting of these single twists to a finished embroidery thread is done in a so called Z-turn. The twists per meter depend on the type of thread.
