Following the success of our 2020 Color Builders, we’re pleased to announce a brand new subscription for 2021. Based on feedback collected from valued shops and customers, we’ve created a program that heralds and highlights the very first thread weight produced by Aurifil: 40wt. If you are new to Aurifil or to our 40wt thread, this subscription is an excellent introduction!
The 2021 Color Builder Subscription is a capsule of 12 mini-collections, each containing three large spools of 40wt thread — a warm, a medium, and a dark. Wound on a bold green spool, Aurifil’s 40wt/2ply thread is every bit as versatile as our 50wt but with just a bit more strength. 40wt is tremendous for sewing bags and garments, or for when a more defined topstitching or quilting pattern is desired. It is also our number one recommended weight for quilting and machine embroidery.
This year we’ve drawn our color inspiration from 12 magnificent Endangered Species, currently in dire need of attention, advocacy, and compassion. Through our year long marketing efforts, we’ll work toward affecting positive change via increased awareness and targeted fundraising. To help achieve these goals, we’ve partnered with Earth League International.
