Aurifil 80wt Cotton Thread, Red #2250

The finest Egyptian cotton thread produced by Aurifil perfect for use by hand or machine. Your new go to thread for hand applique work and English Paper Piecing!  

For hand-sewing we suggest using lengths no longer than 14”-16″ for best results and minimal breakage. Don’t pull too hard, but don’t be afraid to be firm with your stitches. Our favourite hand sewing needle for this weight is the Tulip Hiroshima needle #10.

For machine sewing we recommend using a very thin, very sharp needle such as 70/10 or 80/12 Microtex/Sharp. It also helps to take your time and sew slowly.
