Aurifil Color Builders 2021


The 2021 Aurifil Color Builders were created in part to herald and highlight the very first thread weight produced by Aurifil: 40wt. They are a capsule of 12 mini-collections dedicated to an incredibly worthy cause that falls in line with our goal to increase Aurifil’s sustainability and positive environmental impact — Endangered Species. Each collection contains three large spools of our supple and strong 40wt thread — a warm, a medium, and a dark.

We’ve drawn our color inspiration from 12 magnificent animals, currently in dire need of attention, advocacy, and compassion. We are dedicated to highlighting their stories, helping to educate on their struggles, and working to create valuable change via awareness and fundraising. To help achieve these goals, we are collaborating with Earth League International and are looking forward to a strong and effective partnership.

=======================================================

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.
