Although strong, it is delicate to work with, so it is vital to have trimmed fingernails to avoid catching and tearing. Stranded silk - these threads have a sparkling look and can be separated into strands for sewing in embroidery projects. Silk ribbon - silk ribbon is used for silk ribbon embroidery, both as projects in their own right, and for decorative projects such as on handbags, tops, skirts, etc. Wool threads : Wool threads tend to be used for embroidery projects and for blankets using blanket stitch.
Wool works best with heavy fabrics, such as wool, or canvas. Persian wool - Persian wool consists of three strands. You can use the three strands together or separate the threads to use singly. Whether or not you separate the threads will depend on the project and the thickness of the fabric being sewn. Tapestry wool - this wool is not as thick as the Persian wool. It is not dividable. Crewel wool - this is the finest of the wool threads. It is ideal for crewel embroidery projects.
While it is fine, you can weave it into a thicker thread by twisting with more threads. Machine threads : These are the threads inserted into a sewing machine. Bobbin threads - this is an affordable thread that goes on the bobbin; it is commonplace for use on sewing machines and is used for a wide variety of general sewing projects made on the sewing machine.
Variegated thread - these threads are dyed different shades, the variegation repeating along the length of the thread in an even manner. Suitable generally for embroidery projects or colorful sewing projects, such as crazy quilt jackets, etc. Metallic threads : Metallic threads are used for goldwork embroidery and for embellishment on items such as handbags. The colors are gold, silver, and copper. Purl thread - this thread is hollow. Also twist thread and pearl purl Japan thread - this is a very fine metallic thread that usually requires two threads used at the same time.
Select sewing thread according to the right color. Once you have decided which type and strength of thread is suitable for your project, you will need to match its color. This is where it is a really good idea to purchase the entire quantity of thread in the color you are using to ensure that you keep the same batch color quality throughout the sewing project, especially in the case of embroidery.
If you cannot find an exact color match, select a color of thread one to two shades darker than the fabric color to blend in. Light thread will stand out much more. Consult the sewing instructions. It is important to read the instructions of any sewing pattern or embroidery project from beginning to end prior to undertaking a project.
The pattern or instructions should tell you what thread it recommends. It is a good idea to try to match the recommendation exactly, or as closely as possible, to ensure the best outcome for the project. When you are more experienced, you will be able to make thread substitutes with the full understanding of the end results. Purchase quality thread. Cheap thread is cheap thread and will not last. Quality thread costs more but is definitely worth it to ensure the quality and durability of your project in the long-run, as well as making the stitching process easier and more enjoyable, especially in the case of embroidering.
Yes, sewing machines need sturdier thread, but you have a few options to choose from. Avoid cotton sewing threads, which will break too easily for a machine.

Reviewed on Oct 1, It's not bad. Reviewed on Mar 22, See Figure 6. Significance This result is a little smaller than the coefficient listed in Table 6. All objects slide down a slope with constant acceleration under these circumstances. We have discussed that when an object rests on a horizontal surface, the normal force supporting it is equal in magnitude to its weight. Furthermore, simple friction is always proportional to the normal force. When an object is not on a horizontal surface, as with the inclined plane, we must find the force acting on the object that is directed perpendicular to the surface; it is a component of the weight.
We now derive a useful relationship for calculating coefficient of friction on an inclined plane. Notice that the result applies only for situations in which the object slides at constant speed down the ramp. An object slides down an inclined plane at a constant velocity if the net force on the object is zero.
We can use this fact to measure the coefficient of kinetic friction between two objects. As shown in Example 6. These forces act in opposite directions, so when they have equal magnitude, the acceleration is zero. Writing these out,.
Put a coin on a book and tilt it until the coin slides at a constant velocity down the book. You might need to tap the book lightly to get the coin to move. The simpler aspects of friction dealt with so far are its macroscopic large-scale characteristics.
Great strides have been made in the atomic-scale explanation of friction during the past several decades. Researchers are finding that the atomic nature of friction seems to have several fundamental characteristics. These characteristics not only explain some of the simpler aspects of friction—they also hold the potential for the development of nearly friction-free environments that could save hundreds of billions of dollars in energy which is currently being converted unnecessarily into heat.
We have noted that friction is proportional to the normal force, but not to the amount of area in contact, a somewhat counterintuitive notion. When two rough surfaces are in contact, the actual contact area is a tiny fraction of the total area because only high spots touch.
When a greater normal force is exerted, the actual contact area increases, and we find that the friction is proportional to this area. However, the atomic-scale view promises to explain far more than the simpler features of friction. The mechanism for how heat is generated is now being determined.
In other words, why do surfaces get warmer when rubbed? Essentially, atoms are linked with one another to form lattices. When surfaces rub, the surface atoms adhere and cause atomic lattices to vibrate—essentially creating sound waves that penetrate the material. The sound waves diminish with distance, and their energy is converted into heat. Chemical reactions that are related to frictional wear can also occur between atoms and molecules on the surfaces. The force needed to drag the tip can be measured and is found to be related to shear stress , which is discussed in Static Equilibrium and Elasticity.
The variation in shear stress is remarkable more than a factor of 10 12 10 12 and difficult to predict theoretically, but shear stress is yielding a fundamental understanding of a large-scale phenomenon known since ancient times—friction.
