Care Instructions


Pearl Yacht Cotton Decorative Threads
(Smock #N5, #8, #12, and SPC-5, SPC-25)

Washing Instructions:

Embroidered articles or garments should be washed with a mild detergent in cold or lukewarm water. Immediately after washing, rinse the embroidery in cold water thoroughly until articles are free of colour residue.

Avoid using chlorine bleach or optical brightening agents or heavy detergents which may cause discolouration.

Wash embroideries separately from other laundry and do not crowd them into washing machine. Do not wring out or rub briskly.

After washing, dry the embroidery immediately. Never leave embroidered items soaking in water or folded or piled together when wet to prevent cross staining.

When stain removers are to be used, it is suggested that a small experimental evaluation be conducted in advance to make sure that the stain remover dose not affect colours adversely.

Embroidery is dry cleanable with any solvent except trichoroethylene.


Ironing Instructions:

All embroidered items should always be ironed on the reverse side, at a medium-high temperature setting, and most preferably between two pieces of cloth.


Usage Instructions:

It is recommended that thread from the same dye lot is used on symmetrical panels that require all identical colour combination. If no thread of the same dye lot is available, it is advisable to run, for evaluation, threads of different dye lots on a sample piece of material before sewing on a garment.

Colour numbers are common to all Pearl Yacht cotton threads. A slight colour variation between different thread sizes or types may be visible due to the differences in thickness and twist count. If different thread sizes or types of the same colour number are to be used in combination, it is recommended to test run the threads on a sample piece of material to determine the suitability of the colour.


Pearl Yacht threads are manufactured and quality controlled to the highest possible standards. However, since the conditions of use, washing, pressing and cleaning, etc. vary, preliminary tests should be conducted by the purchasers themselves to make sure that the dye fastness of the thread is suitable for its intended use. We can not be held responsible for any consequential damages since the value of the thread is so disproportionate to the value of the goods onto which it is sewn.
