Aurifil Carolyn Friedlander Light Mix Thread Set
Aurifil Carolyn Friedlander Light Mix Set - 2 (50wt), 3 (80wt) and 5 (12wt) spools of cotton thread.
This combination of Aurifil's 50wt, 80wt and 12wt cotton thread in a light range of colors is a multi-performing set for machine and hand piecing, appliqué and hand quilting.
Thread Set Details
+ 2 spools of 50wt cotton, 220 yards each in white and light gray to cover the most important of your light-colored bases. 50wt cotton is my go-to thread for machine and hand piecing, machine quilting, as well as any hand basting.
+ 3 spools of 80wt cotton, 300 yards each in white, light gray and light yellow to cover the most important of your light-colored bases. 80wt cotton is my must-have thread for hand appliqué. It's so fine that it disappears into your project.
+ 5 spools of 12wt cotton, 54 yards each in pale shades of melon, peach, lilac, blue and mint. 12wt cotton is a beautiful thread for big stitch hand quilting. It is easy to work with and adds great texture and color to your project. The fun thing about big stitch quilting is that you don't necessarily have to match the threads to your project fabrics! Using a contrasting color can really set the stitches off, and a matching color can blend in nicely.
+ This set comes in a rigid, cardboard case with colorful label.
+ 50wt and 12wt threads come on plastic spools, and 80wt threads come on wooden spools.
+ Small spools are perfectly portable.
