Aurifil threads are manufactured in Italy. They are pure cotton 2-ply threads made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and mercerised for a wonderful sheen. They are ideal for machine quilting as they are very smooth with very little lint and virtually no slub. They behave extremely well through sewing machines and are easy to work with by hand.
Thread colours are both light (UV) and wash fast. We recommend using a Microtex 70 needle for piecing and a Quilting 90 needle for quilting.
This kit box represents great value for money compared to purchasing the threads separately. A kit box makes a wonderful quilter's gift, either for a friend or for yourself.
