Frequently Asked Questions About Aurifil Quilting Thread


Here are some of our most common questions about Aurifil thread. Please get in touch with us if you need help with our Aurifil thread collections.


What Is the Best Weight of Aurifil Thread for Quilting?

While Aurifil 50wt thread is the most popular, the weight you choose depends on the type of quilting you are doing, the stage of quilting you are in and the effects you wish to achieve. Larger numbers translate into finer thread. Here are some basics at a glance, but you can read our Aurifil Thread Weight Comparison for more information.

  • 80wt - Adds superfine detail and makes stitches that settle into the piece.
  • 50wt - Creates a beautiful subtle effect to allow the piecing to shine.
  • 40wt - Provides greater stitch definition while still highlighting the piecing.
  • 28wt - Offers beautiful texture with hand stitching and directs attention to the decorative stitching when used for machine quilting.
  • 12wt - Produces bold designs for big stitch hand-quilting and bobbin work.

Is Aurifil Thread Waxed?

Aurifil quilting thread is not waxed; however, it is treated with residue-free, transparent paraffin oil during the winding process.


Is Aurifil Thread Organic?

No, Aurifil thread is not organic; however, it is OEKO-TEX certified free of harmful chemicals, and the company is committed to being environmentally responsible. Aurifil also partners with Plastic Bank for its sustainability efforts toward reducing plastic waste.


What Is the Aurifil Thread Club?
