Hello everyone. Well, another newbie question.
I've heard good things about Aurifil Thread so I thought I would try some for piecing. I've been using C&C machine quilting thread with few problems overall except for the lint. But the new Aurifil is 50 wt, 2 ply. It doesn't seem very strong; in fact, I can readily break it when I pull on it. I could not do that with my other thread which is 3 ply.
So, is this normal for a 2 ply, 50 weight? I've just not used it before. It is a much thinner thread but I'm concerned if it is strong enough for piecing. I just don't know these things and I have searched a lot but haven't found where this particular issue is discussed.
Also, I've been using a 90/14 needle for piecing general cotton fabrics. What size needle would be best for this particular thread?
Thanks for educating GrandPa!
