Abstract:

In the production of garments, embroidery carries out decorative, informative, data transfer and other functions. The features of textiles, stitch density, filling type, area and other factors have a direct influence on embroidery quality. The objective of the paper was to investigate the influence of embroidery threads on the accuracy of embroidery pattern dimensions. For the investigations, embroidery threads with a different linear density, fibre composition, structure, and purpose were selected. Test samples were embroidered by two different filling types, with an embroidery width of 7, 6, 4, 3 and 2 mm, in warp and weft directions and in the bias direction. In all the cases analysed, the width and area of the embroidery pattern was established to decrease the width and area of the digital design. The greatest elongation values were observed during the embroidery process in the bias direction of the fabric.
