Aurifil Cotton Mako 50 Wt. Thread


Aurifil’s 50wt Mako thread is their most versatile and most popular cotton thread is wound on their iconic orange spool. The 50wt thread is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams. While it is wonderful for piecing, subtle quilting & topstitching, and English Paper Piecing, it also works incredibly well for needle turn applique, bobbin and machine lace, machine applique (straight stitch, zig zag, blind hem and blanket stitch), machine embroidery, dense machine quilting, subtle machine and longarm quilting, basting, wholecloth and micro quilting, and dense background designs.  Due to differences in screens, the actual thread color may vary slightly from the photos which are provided by the manufacturer.
