### How to Calculate Embroidery Thread Consumption in Apparel Industry?

Embroidery thread consumption calculation is not a tough task that we have normally seemed. There are so many garment merchandisers who still don’t know the correct calculation method of it. Every garment merchandiser should have a clear idea about it. As its importance in the readymade garments sector, today I will present here an easy method for calculating embroidery thread consumption in the apparel industry.

#### Embroidery Thread Consumption Calculation System in Garments Industry:

Before calculating embroidery threads consumption, a garment merchandiser should have a clear idea about the following data:

1. Stitch quantity in the embroidery design,
2. Stitch length in the embroidery design (which depends on design and types of the stitch),
3. Length of thread in the cones.

Now, by using the below formula, a garment merchandiser can easily calculate the embroidery threads consumption in the apparel industry.

Embroidery thread consumption for 1pc garment (No. of the cone),

Now one example is enough to remove all the confusion from the above discussion.

#### Example:

Suppose, the buyer H&M provides you a knitted polo shirt (with embroidery) order (10000pcs), where the no. of stitch in the embroidery is 5000 and stitch length is 5mm, now calculate the embroidery thread consumption for the above polo shirt order.

#### Solution:

Given that,

Stitch quantity in the embroidery design = 5000,
Stitch length in the embroidery design = 5mm
Length of thread in the cone = 5000m (let).

Now,

Embroidery thread consumption for 1pc polo shirt (No. of the cone),

= 0.001cone.

So, for a 1pc polo shirt, embroidery threads needed 0.001 cones.

And,

For 10000pcs polo shirt, embroidery threads needed (0.001 × 10000) = 100 cones.
