Description

This is a stranded cotton ideal for handwork. – 18yds.

This is an extra long staple 100% cotton thread. Classed as a 12/2 (12 weight, 2 ply) thread, Aurifil 12 is made from the finest Egyptian long staple cotton and is mercerised for a wonderful sheen and s the thickest Egyptian cotton thread from the Aurifil stables. It’s ideal for hand stitching, embroidery, redwork, sashiko and other sewing crafts where a thick thread with very little lint and good lustre is required.

Like all Aurifil cottons, it is a very smooth thread with very little lint and virtually no slub. It’s an excellent hand embroidery thread, particularly nice for hand quilting, as when working ‘big stitch’ or sashiko through layers of fabric. We do not recommend Aurifil 12 for machine sewing. For hand quilting we recommend a John James Embroidery size 8 needle, a darning needle or a sashiko needle.

This is perfect for redwork, kantha and lots of other hand embroidery techniques.

but for those of you who are brave enough, it can be used on the machine:  here are some suggestions for use  from Aurifil:

It is a fantastic addition to your appliqué, machine quilting/embroidery and hand work. It is a must have in every sewing room! Here is a list of recommendations on how to use this premium thread.

Machine Appliqué Use 12wt for a heavy Blanket Stitch or for a primitive look use a Buttonhole Stitch. (Use 50wt in the bobbin)

Machine embroidery 12wt is beautiful for designs that use a longer stitch length. Use a Top Stitch 100/16 needle.

Machine Quilting Superb for art quilting when heavier thread effects are desired . Beautiful on linen and denim fabric . Use a 90/14 topstitch needle.

Machine Sashiko Achieve great results using 12wt for Machine Sashiko

Redwork 12wt is perfect for Red-work and Stitchery

Serging Lower Looper

Longarm Quilting Beautiful effect, quilt slowly, large needle (4.5), adjust thread path for less resistance, use silicone when necessary, pair with 28wt bobbin thread. Good for art quilting when heavier thread effects are desired
