Aurifil’s 100% Cotton 40wt thread is available in all 270 of our Cotton colors and is wound on a green spool. Because of its slightly thicker weight, it is perfect for use with sewing bags, toys or dolls, garments, or when a more defined topstitching or quilting pattern is desired. It is also terrific for Single, Double or Triple Strand Cross Stitch, Hand Piecing, Bobbin and Machine Lace, Machine Applique, Machine Embroidery, Edge-to-Edge, Pantographs, and Custom Longarm Quilting.

Uses:
Single, Double or Triple Strand Cross Stitch, Hand Piecing, Bobbin and Machine Lace, Machine Applique, Machine Embroidery, Edge-to-Edge, Pantographs, Custom Longarm Quilting.

Bobbin:
For best results when using 40wt thread by machine, we recommend using Aurifil 50wt in the bobbin. It’s the perfect thread partner but is also incredibly economical as more thread will fit on the bobbin. Longarmers should use 40wt in the bobbin and go a little slower than normal when quilting, particularly when creating curves.
 
Needle: 
It is best to use an 80/12 or 90/14 Topstitch, Quilting, or Denim needle when using this thread by machine. We recommend a 3.0 needle size or larger for longarm quilters. Our test groups have found that using an MR (multidirectional) needle helps to reduce breakage when using 2ply threads on the longarm.
