Item details

Color: Light Sand
1422 yd spool
100% Mercerized cotton - Long staple Egyptian cotton is the best in the world!
Low lint for happy quilting/sewing!
The 50 weight is the finest of the Mako threads and is very smooth and strong.

Aurifil 50wt thread is so versatile and can be used in hand and machine sewing/quilting projects.
Here are a few ideas:

Machine Appliqué
Ideal when a very fine finish is desired. This weight disappears so your fabric is the feature. Use for a straight stitch, small zig zag , Blind hemming stitch , and Blanket stitch.

Machine Embroidery
Great results every time. Use 50wt in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread – in which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12 needle.

Machine piecing
Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time.

Machine quilting
Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting . Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you don’t necessarily want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin and a Sharp/Microtex, quilting or even denim needles 80/12.

Longarm quilting
Perfect for creating texture where you don’t want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch, basting quilts, whole cloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background designs. Match bobbin thread.

Our fabric and threads are of the highest quality and kept in a smoke-free pet-free environment.

You have to request a custom listing to get First Class Shipping for smaller orders to Canada.
We have recently updated the way we ship international orders. They now ship at package rates, which is slightly higher, but allows us to expedite international orders much quicker, and includes tracking! First class packages take about 2-4 weeks to arrive to most destinations worldwide. Often it is best to request a custom listing when buying multiple fabrics and take advantage of the flat rate priority mailing envelope. We can fit up to 4 yards into it, for $23.95 shipping to Canada, and $32.95 everywhere else in the world. And it's shipping time is often more than double the speed of the first class option. If your shipping seems high, contact us before placing your order, you can send a message and copy/paste your carts selections into it requesting a private listing with the combined shipping.

Please convo us regarding any shipping questions. Thank you!
