50 wt Aurifil Thread - Its versatility, strength, lustrous color and the fact that it produces virtually no lint is the reason Aurifil threads have achieved worldwide success, adored by dedicated quilters, sewists, and textile artists.


Each spool of AURIfil Cotton Makó is mercerized - this enables fiber's contraction and increases the efficiency during the drying procedure. The result is a high sheen thread with a great washing resistance. 


The 50wt is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams.
