Aurifil decided to focus in 2021 on a valuable issue that would be in line increasing commitment to sustainable development principles and positive environmental impacts, so it decided to support endangered species with this collection of sewing threads. The inspiration for this color collection of cotton yarns came from 12 stunning animal species that are in dire need of attention, defense and compassion at the moment. Aurifil aims to bring out their stories, tell them about their life struggle and raise funds to assist them by collaborating with Earth League International.
The 2021 Color Builders sewing thread collection was also created to bring out Aurifil’s first thread weight of 40wt. It consists of 12 mini collections, each containing three large spools of elastic and strong 40wt yarn - in color tones in warm, plain and dark. The threads are on a green spool and their 40wt/2ply -wire is just as versatile as a 50wt wire, but a little stronger. It is well suited for sewing bags and clothes or when a more distinguished top or stitching pattern is desired. It is also our most recommended sewing thread weight for quilting and machine embroidery.
To support the situation of endangered animal species through Aurifil, we brought this multi-purpose collection of sewing threads to Tilkkunen.
