When I first began to embroider by machine, it came as a bit of a surprise to me that there was a specific thread to use in the bobbin. Special bobbin thread? Who knew? Bobbin thread is thinner than embroidery thread and is usually white or black. A few manufacturers such as YLI have other colors, and YLI also makes a specialty bobbin thread to use on lingerie projects.

There are several reasons why you want to use bobbin thread when you are embroidering. First of all, it is less dense than embroidery thread, and it won’t add bulk to your design. Secondly, it costs less than embroidery thread.

There are a few exceptions to using bobbin thread, If you are working on a towel or a fleece blanket that will be seen from the wrong side as well as the right side, don’t use bobbin thread. In these cases, use regular thread that's the same color as the fabric instead of the bobbin thread. Or better yet, use the same thread that you're using in the needle for the right side, so the wrong side will look as nice as the right side.
