Aurifil Cotton Mako - 2311 Muslin - Cone 5900m


Aurifil 50wt thread is their most versatile and most popular cotton thread. It is available in all 270 of our Cotton colors and is wound Aurifil's 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 and topstitching, and English paper piecing, it also works incredibly well for needle turn applique, bobbin and machine lace, machine applique (straight, zigzag, blind hem, and blanket stitches), machine embroidery, dense machine quilting, subtle machine and longarm quilting, basting, whole cloth, micro quilting, and dense background designs.

Needle Recommendations:

  • 80/12 Microtex/Sharp, Universal, Quilting, or Denim Needles (50wt in the bobbin)
  • 4.0 Longarm Needle (50wt in the bobbin)
