Aurifil Variegated Polyester Thread
Ideal for quilting on long-arm machines
3000 metre king cone
Aurifil’s variegated polyester thread is a 40wt high-sheen premium trilobal polyester thread. It has absolutely no lint and will not break in normal use, making it ideal for high speed machine quilting, such as with a long-arm quilting machine. For long-arm machine set-up, we recommend using a 3.5/4.0 needle and a 50wt bobbin thread when using Aurifil Polyester as a top thread. Alternatively use the same variegated polyester thread in the bobbin, or a lightweight polyester such as Superior Bottom Line.
Aurifil polyester thread can also be used in normal domestic sewing machines, in which case we recommend using a Schmetz Quilting 90 needle with either the same thread or Superior Bottom Line polyester thread in the bobbin. We recommend using a cone holder stand when feeding thread from king cones onto a domestic machine.
