The new SewGlo™ 5m Bobbin Wound Spool is a 5m long piece of SewGlo™ thread in Vibrant Blue, which is the natural color of the phosphor. This spool is meant to be inserted directly into sewing machines or wind directly to your bobbins easily. Great for embroidery or standard sewing machines. SewGlo™ illuminated thread is a brand new type of illuminated wire, that can be sewn, stitched, glued and more. It can even be knotted, as the minimum bending diameter is roughly 0.1mm. Now you can sew illuminated accents into just about anything; hats, pants, jackets, shirts, costumes, props, set design and much more.
NOTE: This is only the SewGlo™ fiber. No battery pack or inverter included.
Both soft and water resistant, SewGlo™ is able to be a 1:1 direct replacement for common thread, only SewGlo™ will provide illumination to anything it is attached to. In the auto industry, making custom logos in seats, arm rests, visors and more, SewGlo™ provides an easy way to add lit decorative benefits for interior accent lighting. In the wearable or smart textile (commonly referred to as “e-textiles”) market, adding luminescent accents to sporting goods, apparel, children’s clothing, backpacks, shoes, hats, or safety gear has never been easier. For stage performances, now lit accents can be added to props, backdrops, scenery, clothing and much more. In the electronics space, adding lighting to mobile phone cases, watches, headphones, glasses and more can add visual effects to commonly used items. It can even be used in medical devices, home décor, patio furniture, umbrellas, tents, to name just a few. The muted colors of SewGlo™ when off allow the product to blend into fabrics completely until illuminated.
We understand the need for SewGlo™ Illuminated thread to be washable. We’ve got your covered! The unique coating on the material is capable of multiple wash cycles (machine wash cold, hang dry). This allows even more uses for the product as it can actually be laundered and treated like regular clothing items!
There has never been a better time to illuminate any type of textiles than now! For volume inquiries, please use our Project Submission Page and tell us about your project.
If you want us to add a connector on the end of the SewGlo™ cable so it will plug into any of our battery packs or inverters, click here. Be sure to add the total length of SewGlo™ cable on this page first, then specify the total number of connections needed in the Custom Connection link.
NOTE: The purple color is a rich magenta when not illuminated. Once illuminated, it emits a softer violet hue.
