Aurifil’s 50wt thread is their most versatile and most popular Cotton thread. Its versatility, strength, lustrous colour and the fact that it produces virtually no lint is the reason Aurifil threads have achieved worldwide success, adored by a dedicated tribe of quilters, sewists, and textile artists. Originally conceived for the Italian high fashion and luxury bed linen markets, Aurifil are purveyors of 100% Egyptian cotton threads, grown in the Mako region of Egypt and manufactured in Milano, Italy. Thread is not ‘just’ thread when it’s Aurifil.
Aurifil’s 50wt is easily recognizable as it is wound on their iconic orange spool. It is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat, crisp seams.
