The finest Egyptian 100% cotton from Aurifil
A gorgeous fine, smooth thread 80wt is ideal for hand and machine use. It is especially recommended for English Paper Piecing and hand appliqué.
For hand sewing we recommend a fine #10 needle, our personal favourites are Clover Black Gold Appliqué/Sharps #10 or Tulip Hiroshima Milliners Straw #10 big eye. It also helps to use a shorter length thread to avoid tangles and knots, 12"-18" is a good length.
For machine sewing it's recommended you use either a 70/10 or 80/12 Microtex/Sharp or Embroidery needle.
