Due to its two-ply structure, this 50 weight 100% Egyptian cotton thread is virtually lint free. Ideal thread for quilting and machine embroidery.
Hand Appliqué : Ideal for all types of hand appliqué. From needle turning to using prepared shapes.
Hand Piecing : A great weight for hand piecing.
Lace : Wonder for both Bobbin lace & Machine lace.
Longarm Quilting : Perfect for creating texture where you don’t want the thread to be a feature. Backgrounds, stitch in the ditch, basting quilts, wholecloth quilting, micro quilting for dense background designs. Match bobbin thread.
Machine Appliqué : Ideal when a very fine finish is desired. This weight disappears so your fabric is the feature. Use for a straight stitch, small zig zag, Blind hemming stitch, and Blanket stitch.
Machine Embroidery : Love it! Great results every time. Use Mako 50WT in the bobbin as well, or your regular bobbin thread – in which case tighten the top tension a little. Use a Microtex 80/12 needle.
Machine Piecing : Gives a great result with a nice flat seam every time.
Machine Quilting : Use for very detailed machine quilting with a lot of back tracking such as feathers 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. Use a Sharp/Microtex, quilting or even denim needles 80/12.
