Aurifil 80wt Cotton Mako is the finest Aurifil thread and is perfect for hand sewing such as applique, and English Paper Piecing. It can also be used with a maching for Machine Embroidery, Machine Applique and Free Motion Quilting
80wt is such a delicate, thin thread, we recommend using a very thin, very sharp needle when machine sewing. It also helps to take your time and sew slowly. For hand sewing, some users like to use a thread conditioner, though we find that it’s not necessary. We suggest using lengths no longer than 14”-16″ for best results and minimal breakage. Don’t pull too hard, but don’t be afraid to be firm with your stitches. Our favorite hand sewing needle for this weight is the Tulip Hiroshima needle #10.
