Iris Thread Kits

posted in Thread |

When it comes to thread, it should be obvious that we think Iris thread is the biggest bargain around.   Iris thread offers vibrant color, a brilliant sheen, resistance to breakage and is a true forty weight thread, which means it will fill your design faster and better than most threads on the market.  Whether you use rayon or polyester thread, you can find what you need here, and find it at a price that won’t break your budget.

Because we know that thread can be one of the single biggest expenses an embroidery business can have, EnMart also offers polyester and rayon thread kits.  We offer kits of 24, which come in polyester or rayon, and a Best 50 package with a storage rack, which comes in polyester.  Each kit contains either the top 24 or top 50 colors of Iris thread.  If you need to buy multiple colors of thread, buying a kit may be a more inexpensive way to get the colors you need.

If you are currently using another thread and are concerned that the colors in our kits won’t match the colors you currently use, we offer My ThreadBox Free, downloadable software which will do conversions from thread manufactured by other thread manufacturers to Iris thread.  We also offer a downloadable conversion chart for polyester thread.  We do not currently have a conversion chart for rayon thread.

We are always looking for ways to serve our customers better.  One thread special we are currently contemplating offering  is a “U Pick ‘Em” Best 50 kit, which would allow our customers to select their own Best 50 colors and rack.  We are always open to new ways to help our customers, so if you have any other ideas or suggestions for thread specials we can offer, please leave them in the comments or contact us to make a suggestion.

    Is there a conversion table for DMC to Iris embroidery thread?

    There isn’t currently a conversion table for DMC to Iris. Are you looking to convert from DMC? We could certainly help you.

    There isn’t a conversion for Iris to DMC? I have big new project I want to start and a ton of Iris floss but the pattern is in DMC. I was hoping to figure out which of the floss I already have can be used =(

    EnMart does not sell Iris floss. We only sell machine embroidery thread. Your best bet would be to visit the Hilos Iris web site and see if they can help you.

    I’m looking for the same sort of conversion chart from either DMC & Anchor to the Iris floss. I’ve tried emailing Hilos/Iris directly and they never contacted me back and their website is less than user friendly. I guess it’s true what they say…you get what you pay for and I’ll never buy Iris floss again!

    Colleen, I’m sorry to hear of your problems with getting a conversion chart. EnMart does not sell the embroidery floss, we only sell Iris machine embroidery thread, so I really don’t know much about the floss, but I will see what I can find out for you.
