Aurifil Mako 50 - 200m spools
Aurifil 50 Weight Cotton Thread
200m of thread on orange spools
Aurifil Cotton Mako 50 is a very fine, pure cotton, 2-ply thread. It is ideal for use as a bobbin thread when machine quilting, also for patchwork piecing, dressmaking, lacemaking, general purpose sewing, hand applique, detailed and heirloom quilting, and as a general bobbin fill.
Aurifil 50 is a 50 weight thread made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and mercerised for a wonderful sheen. Like all Aurifil cottons, Aurifil 50 is very smooth 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 Quilting size 75 needle. For machine piecing, we recommend using a Schmetz Microtex 70 needle.
