2-ply cotton thread.
Ideal for detailed machine embroidery, quilting, lace design, and
Aurifil Thread is made from Long Staple Egyptian Cotton, 50 weight, 2
ply cotton. Cotton Mako is also mercerized, giving it a sheen not found
in most cotton threads. Ideal for detailed machine embroidery, red work,
quilting, lace design and serging. This thread has really taken off with
machine quilters and has been used in numerous award winning quilts. It
is ideal for hand or machine piecing and applique. Long staple cotton
gives this thread the strength needed for high speed machines and the
extra tugs needed when working by hand.
Why Aurifil threads do not tangle or break:
Aurifil is very careful with the twisting and finishing process,
which eliminates thread fraying and tangling and we all know how important
this is to quilters!
Hand applique: Ideal for all types of hand applique' . From
needle turning to using prepared shapes, the 50wt is thin and with
all the colors available you can match your shape perfectly
Hand piecing: A great weight for hand piecing.
Longarm quilting: Perfect for creating texture where you donít
want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch,
basting quilts, wholecloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background
designs. Match bobbin thread.
Machine applique: Ideal when a very fine finish is desired.
This weight disappears so your fabric is the feature. Use for a straight
stitch, small zig zag , Blind hemming stitch, and Blanket stitch
Machine embroidery: Love it! Great results every time. Use
Mako 50wt in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread Ė in
which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12
or Titanium Top Stitch 80/12 needle.
Machine piecing: Gives a great result with a nice flat seam
Machine quilting: Use for very detailed machine quilting with
a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting
. Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you donít necessarily
want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin.
Titanium Top Stitch 80/12 needle.
