Aurifil 50wt thread is thinner than the 40wt, making it ideal for piecing. Aurifil thread has a thinness that provides flatter, more accurate seams resulting in a truly professional finished product. When it comes to quilting, the 50wt is a fantastic choice because it sinks into the fabrics, creating the perfect amount of definition without being overbearing, allowing the piecing to be the star of the show!
