DIfference between 180gsm and 220gsm cloth

Recommended Posts


I'm fairly new to embroidery and have had my fair share of mistakes. I'm embroidering tee shirts which are 180gsm and polo shirts which are 220gsm. The polo shirt material is clearly thicker than the tee shirt material.

I have a Brother Innov-is NV800e machine which has all sorts of tweaks such as tension, plate height etc etc. I tend to leave it as it is for everything I do and on occasion things happen that I can't explain other than maybe the machine should have been "tweaked" slightly between one cloth type and another. I also use both tear away and cut away stabiliser depending on how dense the embroidery is in places. Denser patterns will have the cut away stabiliser.

I'm therefore reaching out (never typed that before!) to see if anyone can offer any tips for me to try to see if subtle changes can reduce the errors I am getting occasionally.

Thank you, in advance, for any helpful advice.
