Many embroiderers prefer to use Viscose Rayons, as rayon threads come in a richer variety of colours (378 solid colours and 20 variegated and ombre shades) and especially because of their velvet-like silky lustre and natural softness.
As long as garments are washed using a mild detergent containing no additives of bleaching agents such as chlorine, peroxide or sodium carbonate, Marathon Viscose Rayon threads will remain colourfast for the life of the garment.
Choosing your colours
While we use professional photographers to take photos of each shade, it can be a challenge to capture exact shades like pale pinks (may look lilac on some monitors), purples, blue greys, aqua greens and green greys. Colours can also vary when viewed online. To be absolutely sure you are ordering the colours you need, we strongly recommend that you keep your own Marathon Colour Chart book.
We charge a flat rate of $15.70 except for 100cm x 100m backing rolls. We increase the flat rate without notifying our customers when Australia Post increases postage charges
Most of our orders weigh 1 – 3kg and our flat rate is based on what Australia Post charges us for 1 – 3kg.
We refund the difference if the freight costs less than the flat rate.
If it is safe to do so and if you give us an instruction to leave goods at your door or somewhere safe (preferably where it is not visible from the street), we have options to find the best freight cost rate (either Courier or Post service).
