All MARATHON colours are wash and boil fast. For best results, however, the following care are recommended: In case of the same pattern and order, it is necessary for customers to use the very threads complied with an equal Lot No. (Especially, when us in (right and left), symmetrically patterned-embroidery for clothes).
All embroidered items should be washed with mild detergents containing no additives of bleaching agents such as chlorine, peroxide or sodium carbonate. Never leave damp or wet embroidered items pressed together. This applies in particular to embroidery items that are washed for the first time. Large washing tub should be used to ensure free circulation of the items. Do not spin dry or wring out embroidered items.
Marathon thread is produced using well-chosen high quality materials, which is carefully blended with best coloring chemicals using state-of-art equipment. This process combined with our dedicated professionals allows us to produce consistent colours dye-lot after dye-lot. However, whenever possible, it is recommended to use same dy-lot to finish one project.
All embroidered items should be on the reverse side or between two pieces of cloth. Dampen slightly before ironing fabric with steam iron at a low temperature settling.
High temperatures, direct vicinity of heating, moisture and sunlight must be avoided when embroidery thread is stored. Secure loose ends by tying a knot. Do not tape. Repackage thread in the plastic bag when not using to prevent exposure to dust and dirt, as well as guard against humidity.
The customer should assure herself, by preliminary tesing, that the dye fastness of the thread is suitable for her intended use. MARATHON threads are manufactured and quality controlled to the very high standards possible. However, since we have no control over washing dry cleaning and pressing, and since the value of the thread is so disproportional to the value of the material into which it is sewn, we are not responsible for any damage that could occur.
