Based in Italy, Aurifil Threads are specialised in 100% cotton threads for all kinds of sewing. As one of the most popular and well-respected brands for quilters and dress makers all over the world, Aurifil thread collections have high-quality thread for every project.
The Mako Cotton Thread (50wt) from Aurifil is tailor made for piecing, quilting and topstitching. Incredibly durable yet thin, the Mako Cotton Thread creates amazingly flat and crisps seams whatever you’re sewing!
Aurifil Mako 50 is a 2-ply thread made from the finest Eygptian long staple cotton which is mercerised to give it a beautiful sheen. It behaves very well in the sewing machine, and can also be used as a bobbin thread. We recommend you use a Sharp/Microtex or Quilting needle 80/12.
