Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 12wt thread comes in all 270 of our Cotton colours and is wound on a red spool. The thread undergoes many processes during the manufacutring process to ensure the thread is strong, smooth and produces less lint. 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.
The 12wt is the heaviest weight thread that we offer and is perfect for hand applique, hand embroidery, hand quilting, cross stitch, embellishment, handmade lace, machine applique, blanket stitch, machine embroidery (especially for designs that use a longer stitch length), machine art quilting, Sashiko, redwork, lower looper serging, and longarm quilting.
