100% Cotton Mako’ 12wt x 50m Spool
Please note: We tear our Liberty to achieve a line that follows the grain of the fabric - fabric edges may reflect this process.
Aurifil Cotton Mako’ thread is made using the best long staple Egyptian cotton making it strong, smooth and relatively fuzz free and is recommended for any purpose where a reliable, high quality 100% cotton thread is desired.
12wt is the heaviest weight Aurifil offer making it our preferred thread for hand quilting our quilts.
12 Wt Thread uses:
+ 12wt is perfect for hand applique, hand embroidery, hand quilting, cross stitch, embellishment, handmade lace, machine applique, blanket stitch, machine embroidery (especially for designs that use a longer stitch length), machine art quilting, Sashiko, redwork, lower looper serging, and longarm quilting.
+ When using 12wt thread by machine, Aurifil recommend using a much thinner thread in the bobbin, like a 40wt.
+ When using in a Longarm machine, quilt slowly, using a longer stitch and silicone conditioner where necessary.
