Aurifil Mako 28 Cotton Thread
A wonderfully smooth and even cotton thread from Aurifil
Colour 2460 (Burgundy)
750 metre spool
Aurifil cotton Mako 28 thread is a 28 weight, 2 ply thread, made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and mercerised for a wonderful sheen. It is ideal for hand quilting, machine quilting, top stitch, decorative appliqué and many general sewing uses. Like all Aurifil cottons, Aurifil 28 is a very smooth thread with very little lint and virtually no slub. It behaves extremely well through sewing machines and is easy to work with by hand.
Aurifil 28 is very popular with hand quilters because of its beautiful finish and even, soft texture. Machine quilters and surface embroiderers, too, find that this thread runs through the tension discs of their machines beautifully and there is enough body in the thread to add beautiful accents to a surface design.
The colour is both light (UV) and wash fast. For machine quilting, we recommend using a Quilting 90 needle. For hand quilting we recommend a John James size 10 Big Eye Quilting needle.
Aurifil 28 thread is supplied on grey spools holding approximately 750m of thread.
