Does humidity cause Rayon thread to break more? I recently moved from a dry climate to a more humid one. The Viking dealer only carries Polyester thread and when I asked her why, she said that the humidity causes the Rayon thread to break more. I have never heard this. That would mean that I would have to replace ALL of my thread and that is a lot of $.
Is this true?

This type of thread can deteriorate over time, especially when stored improperly. In regions with low humidity, the best place to store rayon thread is in a refrigerated environment. Otherwise, it is best to store the thread in a closed storage case in a cool, dry place. This will help to extend the life of the thread. Excessive exposure to moistness, heat and sunlight can quicken the deterioration process.

Not true. That is just silly. So, humidity does not at all, in any way, cause Rayon thread to break more. If anything, it would be working the other way around instead. So zero reason for you to throw away all your nice existing Rayon thread at all. Soyou do not have to replace all your thread at all for any reason, and for sure not with some from someone that would tell you, you needed to do that. Some people will just ay anything, I guess. I feel Rayon thread will probably break under stress, before some polyester most times, but that does not matter for embroidery at all, as your embroidery is not under garment construction kind of stress at all.

What humidity will do is destroy the framed work, so it you mat and frame your work under glass, then be sure to use acid free materials for framing.

I've had my rayon thread now for years and it's kept in a hot attic a lot of time until it's hot enough for AC. I would think cotton is a lot more likely to go bad in adverse conditions.

Rayon threads are not meant for sewing. Embroidery, yes. Holidng garments together, no.

Your rayon threads collection is fine. For decorative use.
