Aurifil Mako Cotton Threads

Aurifil Cotton Mako thread is made using the best long-staple Egyptian cotton making it strong, smooth and relatively fuzz free.

The long fibres, and the mercerising treatment used during manufacturing, produces a thread with a high sheen and superior strength.

Benefits of Using Aurifil Mako Cotton Threads

  • This fine, but strong, thread produces a subtle effect when used for machine quilting.
  • It is possible to achieve very detailed quilting without an unsightly build up of thread on the quilt.
  • It is a great alternative to silk thread for hand applique as cotton Mako Ne50 beds down into the background for an invisible finish.
  • Machine applique will have a fine delicate finish without the bulky finish of some heavier threads.
  • Ideal for miniature machine piecing, it makes a neat flat, accurate seam with precise points and less bulk.
  • When used for foundation & paper piecing choose a slightly smaller stitch than you would use for general piecing and you will find that the papers will tear away with ease.
  • Recommended for use in the bobbin when machine quilting with any slippery decorative threads.
  • Perfect for miniature patchwork projects
