All purpose thread that is lightweight and strong. Won’t leave a rough finger feel on machine appliqué finish. Great for invisible zigzag machine appliqué. Aurifil’s Monofilament Thread is 100% Nylon.
It is it the perfect choice for use whenever the stitches need to camouflage with the background of a project.
Monofilament can be used as a top thread for many quilting techniques such as stitch-in-the-ditch, invisible machine applique, outlining, shaping and echoing applique, couching, and of course free motion quilting.
The smoothness of the thread also makes it perfect for needle turn applique or EPP.
