Aurifil 12 Cotton Thread - 2780 (Dark Blue)   Our Price: £3.75


Aurifil Mako 12 Cotton Thread

The thickest Egyptian cotton thread from the Aurifil stables

Colour 2780 (Dark Blue)
50 metre spool

Aurifil Cotton Mako 12 thread is a 12 weight, 2 ply thread, made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and mercerised for a wonderful sheen. It is ideal for hand stitching, embroidery, redwork, sashiko and other sewing crafts where a thick thread with very little lint and good lustre is required. The colour is both light (UV) and wash fast.

Like all Aurifil cottons, Aurifil 12 is a very smooth thread with very little lint and virtually no slub. It is an excellent hand embroidery thread, particularly nice for hand quilting and for working 'big stitch' or sashiko through layers of fabric. We do not recommend Aurifil 12 for machine sewing. For hand quilting we recommend a John James Embroidery size 8 needle, a darning needle or a sashiko needle.

Aurifil 12 is supplied on red spools holding 50m of thread.

Please note: We are using professional digital images supplied by Aurifil. The colours are as closely reproduced as possible, but be aware that colour images can vary slightly between monitors. If you have any queries whatsoever about thread colours, please ring us or send us a fabric swatch and we will be happy to match. For regular users of Aurifil threads, we recommend using the Aurifil shade card which is produced with real thread wraps of all the Aurifil cotton thread colours.

Our Price: £3.75
