Aurifil Cotton Mako 80 thread is a 2-ply thread made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and mercerised for a wonderful sheen. Like all Aurifil cottons, Aurifil 80 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. The colour is both light (UV) and wash fast. For machine quilting, we recommend using a Schmetz Microtex 70 or 60 with this thread. For machine piecing, we recommend using a Schmetz Microtex 60 needle.
