when using a microfilament blind hem thread the thread keeps breaking - the tension is perfect but it keeps unraveling incorrectly around the spool and then breaks because the tension becomes to tight (wraps around the disc that the spool sits on)- going slow seems to help but i have to watch it. I've never had a problem with other thread just this one which I purchased from cleaners supply (cleaning /tailoring supply store) I think it has something to do with how it's wound on the spool. It's a huge spool and i don't want to waste it - is there any sort of thread net or spool cap I can buy for it. I have a consew 75t

I have a cone dome. It came with mine .
Just so the thread doesn't come off and
Ending up twisted at the bottom of the spool
You could take some netting sewing that together
And slip it over the spool. It should be slightly
Loose but not to loose just so the thread comes off
Easily. Hope this helps

Do you have an old pair of stockings, pantyhose, tights or maybe Knee High clear stockings? maybe you could just cut a piece of one of those and pop it on there and see what happens? Also maybe stick a piece of felt on your thread stand underneath it. Just even the nylon stocking stretched over it, might make it a bit more controllable while coming off of there, (could be even better than a net maybe) and the felt would make it so in case it all tries to puddle down at the bottom of the cone, (which I think should be less apt to happen with the stocking over it anyways) it can't get wrapped around the pin the cone is sitting on. Will admit, that clear nylon or polyester monofilament is not one of my favorite things at all though. Also if it's kind of wirey, and it's keeping the coils formed in it, as it feeds off, just even having a thread stand a lot farther away from something, might give it a bit more time and space to even uncoil and unkink it's self sometimes. I think anything on a thread stand can be a spool cap, even just some plastic top of a bottle with a hole in it, or maybe one off any sewing machine too, as long as the center diameter was about the same as what it went onto.
