Hello, I would greatly appreciate some feedback about the Amy Roke Polyester thread. We are really frustrated, any help would be wonderful. I am having a problem with the Amy Roke poly threads (532 size). I have searched the internet, asked questions (on Instagram), and it seems that I am the only one having this issue. For reference I have used and have Tiger thread and Lin Cable. We are using Wuta pricking irons in 7, 8, and 9 spi. We have been using the Amy Roke for a few months on many items. Here is our problem: The wax or coating on the thread is coming off. You can take your fingernail and scratch it off, or with very light use it will start to look like it is fraying. If you look closely the fibers are fine, but it is in fact the wax that is coming off (the wax from the factory, most of the time we do not wax it before sewing). It looks terrible. Sometime you can burnish it off by taking a cloth and rubbing hard, very hard. This is happening with multiple colors, whether we wax the thread or not etc. We have 24 of the colors so it is not just one spool. I am confident the thread is strong. However, I cannot send a product out with this happening. I compared this to Tiger thread. Tiger thread will discolor a bit with wear but it's not near as bad as Amy Roke and it does not look like it is fraying. Lin Cable does not seem to have this problem at all. Is anyone having this problem? Is there a solution? Am I doing something wrong? I would LOVE to be told I am doing something wrong Here are some photos (it is hard to get a good photo of it). Trust me though, it does not look good in person... Thanks! Adam
Hi Everyone, I am in the market for a set of 8 or 9 SPI prickling iron. Having read through some of the discussion on this topic from this forum, I am interested in getting a set from Amy Roke. Unfortunately, I was unable to get anyone to respond from the seller (based on their instruction to send email). Does anyone know if there's another way to get in contact with them or a distributor/dealer? Thanks for your help in advance!
