Aurifil - is the 'universal' quilting thread weight in the Mako' range - coming in 1000 metre spools. It is 100 per cent Egyptian Mako' extra long staple mercerised cotton giving superior strength and quality sheen. This universal weight of 40/2 is ideal for most designs in quilting and perfectly suited for decorative stitching on your quilt. It is suitable for both machine and hand quilting and may also be used for utility piecing.
Aurifil is proud that with their Eco friendly factory they produce this responsibly from the raw material to the finished product.
The base of the spool actually doubles as a very clever thread end holder cap. Simply remove for use and replace to hold the end of the thread.
