Aurifil’s 50wt/2ply thread is the most versatile and most popular Cotton thread. We presently stock 49 different colourways of this thread in this size. The thread is wound on Aurifils iconic orange spool. The 50wt is strong and thin and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams.

While it is wonderful for piecing, subtle quilting, topstitching and English Paper Piecing it also works incredibly well for Needle Turn Applique, Bobbin and Machine Lace, Machine Applique (Straight Stitch, ZigZag, Blind Hem and Blanket Stitch,) Machine Embroidery, Dense Machine Quilting, Subtle Machine and Longarm Quilting, Basting, Whole Cloth and Micro Quilting, and Dense Background Designs.

While Aurifil threads are not organic, Aurifil is proud to be Oeko-Tex certified. Oeko-Tex certification relates to how a product is processed, including things like dyes and finishes used. It means that Aurifil threads are certified free of harmful chemicals and are completely safe for human use. Or… in quilter’s terms, you and your loved ones can wrap yourselves in those lovingly stitched quilts without worry!

Aurifil is 100% Egyptian Cotton, grown in the MAKO region of Egypt on the river Nile. When considering the quality of cotton we can make the comparison to that of wine, different geographic areas offer different attributes to the raw material. Aurifil thread is long staple, which refers to the length of the fibers in the raw cotton Boll, the length of the fibers determine the quality of the cotton.

Needle Turn Applique, English Paper Piecing, Hand Piecing, Bobbin, and Machine Lace, Machine Applique (Straight Stitch, Zig Zag, Blind Hem, and Blanket Stitch), Machine Embroidery, Dense Machine Quilting, Subtle Machine, and Longarm Quilting, Basting, Whole Cloth, and Micro Quilting, Dense Background Designs.
