Aurifil Mako 50 4060 Silver Moon 1300m

This versatile 100% cotton thread can be used for:

  • Hand applique - Ideal for all types of hand applique. From needle turning to using prepared shapes, the 50wt is thin and with the range of colours available you can match your shape perfectly.
  • Hand piecing - A great weight for hand piecing.
  • Lace - Brilliant for both Bobbin lace & Machine lace
  • Longarm quilting - Perfect for creating texture where you don't want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch, basting quilts, wholecloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background designs.
  • Machine applique - Ideal when a very fine finish is desired. This weight disappears so your fabric is the feature. Use for a straight stitch, small zig zag, Blind hemming stitch, and Blanket stitch
  • Machine embroidery - Love it! Great results every time. Use 50wt in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread - in which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12 or Top Stitch 80/12 needle.
  • Machine piecing - Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time.
  • Machine quilting - Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers and heavy background quilting. Perfect for quilting that creates texture when you don't necessarily want to see the quilting lines. Use the same thread in the bobbin. Titanium Top Stitch 80/12 needle
