To produce first-rate quilts and embroidery projects, use a superior quality thread like Aurifil's Mako Cotton Thread. This 50-weight thread produces virtually no lint, making it ideal for English paper piecing, machine applique (straight stitch, zig-zag, blind hem, and blanket stitch), basting, bobbin/machine lace, dense background designs, and so much more.
All of Aurifil's thread is 100% Egyptian cotton that is grown in the Mako region of Egypt and manufactured in Milan, Italy. To make their 2-ply Mako Cotton Thread even more luxurious, it is mercerized to add strength and to give the strands a vibrant sheen. With all these fantastic features, it's no wonder why Aurifil thread is famous for its versatility, strength, and radiant color.
Each cone in the Mako Cotton Thread collection holds 6452-yards (5900 meters). To get the best results, Aurifil recommends that you use a size 80/12 microtex/sharp, universal, quilting, or denim needle for everyday use or a 4.0 needle when quilting with a longarm.
