Aurifil Thread
50 WT 2-ply Mercerized Cotton Mako
1300 Meters, 1422 Yards

  • The most popular weight of Aurifil Thread is their finest, 50 weight 2-ply cotton thread.

  • Ideal for detailed machine embroidery, quilting, lace design, and serging.

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 every time.

  • 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.
