Italian made Egyptian Long Staple Fiber 100% cotton - 50 weight, 2 ply cotton thread perfect for applique, piecing and machine quilting. There are 214 solid colors in the 220 yard spool size. Two of them are variegated. There are over 80 larger 1,422 yard spools, and a few of the large cones in the neutral colors.
Hand applique: Ideal for all types of hand applique. From needle turn to using prepared shapes, the 50wt is thin and with all the colors available you can match your shape perfectly.
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 applique: 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.
