About Aurifil 12wt Thread
Each spool of Aurifil Cotton Mako is mercerised - this enables the fibres to contract and increases the efficiency of the dyeing process. The result is a high sheen thread with a great washing resistance uncomparable to other cotton threads available on the market. Aurifil 12 wt thread is ideal for hand quilting, big stitch hand quilting and machine quilting. 12 weight thread creates a more defined and often primitive look. It's great for designs that use a longer stitch length if using a machine. When machine quilting with 12 wt thread, use 40 wt in the bobbin, increase your stitch length, lower your tension, use Topstitch size 90 needles and stitch slowly.
Uses for 12wt thread include Hand Applique, Hand Embroidery, Hand Quilting, Cross Stitch, Embellishment and Lace, Machine Applique, Blanket Stitch, Buttonhole Stitch. Machine Embroidery, Machine Art Quilting, Sashiko, Redwork.
Recommended needle types:
100/16 or 90/14 Topstitch Needle (use 40wt in the bobbin)
4.5 Longarm Needles (use 28wt in the bobbin).
