Aurifil’s 50wt/2-ply thread is their most versatile and most popular Cotton thread. It is wound on their iconic orange spool. The 50wt is strong, thin, and practically lint-less, resulting 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.

Each thread is wound with 1,422 yards of thread.  Such a versatile thread! No wonder it's loved by so many quilters!
