Superior Threads has been a prominent thread supplier in the apparel, industrial, quilting, & sewing industry since 1998. With excellent customer service and high-quality products, Superior Threads has been internationally recognized as an key player in providing innovative products.
NiteLite ExtraGlow is one of these products. NiteLite is a glow-in-the-dark thread. Glow thread has many characteristics which make it a specialty item. Are there certain lights that must be used to charge the glowing agent in the thread? How long with the thread glow for? Can I wash it in my washing machine? Is it Dryer-safe?
(For heavy-duty sewing or upholstery, use our new SewGlow™ glow-in-the-dark thread!)
Superior Threads NiteLite is one of the best glowing thread in the industry due to its ability to illuminate up to 8 hours without the need of special lights to charge the active glowing agent in the thread. Simply hold the thread up to any light for thirty seconds to a minute and the thread will do all the work! NiteLite glow in the dark thread is not an injection dye; meaning the thread is not created, wound, and then injected with the special glowing agent. NiteLite glowing thread is made from 100% polyester and from the first steps of the creation process is combined with the glowing agent. This allows for a lengthier glow time and a more durable thread since the glowing agent can't be "rubbed off" the thread.
Superior Threads' glowing thread is strong enough for industrial machines. Having a strong glow-in-the-dark thread is very advantageous since it will hold up in the piece it is being sewn into. For superior glow-ability, it is recommended that heavy stitching is applied to where the glowing effect is wanted. Not a single meandering stitch, but back and forth stitching. This ensures a bold glowing effect.
Wonderful for Halloween, children's projects (Pajamas, bed sheets, clothing), quilting, upholstery embellishment (not recommended to use as actual upholstery thread - Use SewGlow™ for upholstery and heavy sewing), and any use where you want a wonderful glow to appear.
