I did it. I finally managed to finish my first spool of Aurifil! (Needless to say, I bought another one right away…)
One of my sewing mentors recommended it to me last year, so when I found some white Aurifil at SewExpo in February, I thought I’d give it a try. I used that spool all year — and just the other day it finally ran out. Ten months of hard sewing out of just one spool of thread? I was hooked!
Besides coming on comparatively large cones, Aurifil is a very slender, thin fiber. This means it slides right through tiny needle eyes (always a plus!) and is more in scale for doll-sized wear. It’s a little difficult to see the size difference from the photo above, but there is no mistaking the delicate Aurifil when you’re actually sewing! It also didn’t seem to fray or tangle as much as ordinary thread — and thread that behaves itself makes for a very happy seamstress!
