Merrow Floss

If you’ve ever looked at the edge of a blank patch from EnMart,  you’ve probably noticed that the merrowed edges of our patches have great color.    The vibrant color of our merrowed edges comes from the merrow floss we use in creating our blank patches.    As with all the threads we use,  the merrow thread used to edge our blank patches is manufactured by Hilos Iris,  and not only do we use it ourselves,  we sell it as well.

For those of you who don’t know,  merrow floss is used with a merrow machine.   A merrow machine is used, among other things,  to place the colored edge around a blank patch.   EnMart’s parent company, Ensign Emblem,  uses merrow machines in each of our plants,  and when coupled with the Iris merrow thread,   these machines create colored borders for our emblems and patches that are able to withstand the heat and harshness of an industrial wash.

Iris Merrow floss is a 300/4 merrow floss,   and has been rated as having the best color and durability in the industry.  The merrow floss EnMart sells is also known for the following qualities:

  • Excellent color fastness
  • Excellent lubricity
  • Super brightness
  • High tenacity
  • Great elongation
  • Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance

If you need blank patches to use for your business,  you now have two options for how to obtain those patches.  Option one would be to purchase complete blank patches from EnMart.   The other option would be to purchase the merrow floss and create the blank patches yourself.
