I am proud to have been named an Aurifil
As a quilter who embraces both
traditional quilts and fiber art, I love Aurifil
because it works great for both!
Aurifil Cotton
Mako 50
is both strong and fine, making it ideal
for needleturn appliqué. It sinks right into the
appliqué fabric and nearly disappears.

I also love to use the 50 weight in my machine thread sketching (using thread to create detail on the surface of an art quilt before it is quilted). Because of its light weight, it doesn’t cause my work to pucker or draw up the way heavier thread would. And there’s no heavy thread buildup, so I can create a lot of detail.

Cotton Mako also has a lovely sheen you don’t find with many other cotton threads. It works magnificently in the bobbin, whether I’m using a heavier thread on the top, or the same weight. Unlike some other threads, it almost never breaks, and it leaves practically no lint in my machine.

I use AURIfil Cotton Mako 40 for machine quilting, and Cotton Mako 28 for hand quilting. AURIfil’s variegated threads have beautiful subtle color variations, and are a favorite for machine quilting.
