Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 80wt thread is one of the newest members of the Aurifil family. A stunning set of calming luxurious colors showcased on beautiful cherry wooden spools. Includes 5 spools (300 yards each) of 80wt 100% cotton thread.

Such a thin thread is perfect for a variety of techniques, including English Paper Piecing, Hand Applique, Machine Embroidery, Machine Applique, Free Motion Quilting, Free Motion Couching, and more.

Aurifil 80 wt. is thin and strong! That spool might look small, but there is a lot of thread on it. And who can resist those adorable wooden spools? Makes a perfect gift to yourself and/or the sewer in your life. Personally it's my favourite thread to use when hand piecing. It easily glides through the fabric and just melts into the seam allowance, so my quilt blocks come out the size they are supposed to!
