Aurifil Cotton 12wt - For hand quilting and sashiko

Aurifil's Cotton 12wt is their thickest and heaviest weight thread. It's the perfect choice for hand quilting, as well as sashiko and redwork.



We love using Aurifil Cotton 12wt for...

Hand Quilting: Perfect for ‘big stitch’ style quilting, as well as sashiko and redwork stitching. Also works well for tied quilting.

Sashiko: 12wt works beautifully for both hand and machine sashiko, a traditional Japanese stitching technique.

Hand Appliqué: Use for blanket stitch appliqué to create a primitive 'folk' look.

Cross Stitch: 12wt is suitable for backstitching or cross-stitching in one strand, giving more definition to your work.

Hand Embroidery and Embellishment: Use 12wt to add embroidery stitches as embellishment. Use as a replacement for perle thread.

Machine Quilting: Superb for quilting when heavier thread effects are desired.
