Wound on our iconic orange spool, our Our Amazingly Versatile 50wt Thread! is strong and thin, and results in remarkably flat and crisp seams. While it is wonderful for piecing and subtle quilting & topstitching, it also works incredibly well for Foundation Paper Piecing, machine embroidery, fiber art, and as a go-to staple in the bobbin!


Bobbin: When using 50wt thread in a domestic or longarm machine, we recommend using Aurifil 50wt in the bobbin. 

Needle: It is best to use an 80/12 or 90/14 Topstitch or Sharp Needle in your domestic machine. We recommend a 2.5 or 3.0 Needle for Longarm quilters.
