Aurifil Thread NE50Each quilter usually has a favourite make of thread. In my case it's Aurifil. I find their 50weight thread ideal for both piecing and quilting - makes life easier when you can keep the same thread in the machine for both.
This thread comes on an orange cone - the colour varies according to the weight of thread - and the ones that I stock are 1300 metres (1450 yards). That's a lot of thread so I don't have to keep changing the spool.
The pearl and cream colours are very similar - off whites that can be used with most fabrics.
Price is per individual spool.
I'll reprint here what Aurifil say about their thread:
Aurifil has been manufacturing a high quality 100% Egyptian Mako cotton thread since 1983. Each spool of Aurifil cotton mako is mercerised - this enables fibre's contraction and increases the efficiency during the dyeing procedure. The result is a high sheen thread with a great washing resistance incomparable to other cotton threads available on the market.
This inimitable quality makes Aurifil the ideal thread for quilting, sewing and embroidery, both by hand and machine.
Several leading textile companies on the industrial market choose Aurifil for their creations.
Delivery is free within the UK but there is a small charge for delivery outside the UK.
