Madeira Launch New Sensa Green Sustainable Thread at Festival of Quilts

By Emily Peagram 20 Sep 2022

Award-winning quilt artists Linda and Laura Kemshall teamed up with Madeira threads to showcase the new Sensa Green thread range at the Festival of Quilts 2022 in August. This new, 100% lyocell thread is naturally smooth, soft, and strong and is produced using sustainable raw materials in a process that uses environmentally friendly technologies.

Linda and Laura’s work demonstrates their love for hand, machine, and digital stitch with a layering of techniques that builds rich surfaces. Visitors could see how Laura combined stitch with monoprint and screenprint, alongside Linda’s experimenting with digital stitch and painting.

Sensa Green is a soft sustainable embroidery thread made from 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres and is the first coloured machine embroidery thread of its kind. This new premium thread is feather soft, gentle on the skin, has a distinguished silk matt finish, and is made from naturally strong, smooth, biodegradable lyocell. Developed with a focus on sustainability, the wood-based thread’s manufacturing process uses environmentally friendly technologies and sustainable raw materials. Madeira’s latest innovation is an important development and a critical move for both the textile industry and the environment.
