Mako 50

This versatile 100% cotton thread can be used for:

  • Hand appliqué: ideal for all types of hand appliqué
  • Hand piecing: a great weight for hand piecing
  • Lace: brilliant for both bobbin and machine lace
  • Longarm quilting: perfect for creating texture where you want the thread to blend into the background fabric
  • Machine appliqué: ideal when a very fine finish is required, this weight blends in so that your fabric is the feature. Use for straight stitch, zig zag, blind hemming and blanket stitch
  • Machine embroidery: 50wt can be used in the bobbin as an alternative to your regular bobbin thread - tighten the top tension a little and 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 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. Top Stitch 80/12 needle
