Aurifil Brillo (pronounced Brreel-lo) is a new high performance thread.
The unique formula (78% polyester & 22 % Nylon) gives this smooth “metallic” thread the right strength to travel very easily through the machine needle.
Ideal for quilting and embroidery, Brillo will give your creation a beautiful brilliance!
Available in 32 colours, Aurifil Brillo is a very modern thread, wound on “old fashioned” wooden spools which are sure to appeal to your customers.
Brillo is machine washable.

We like to put our threads “through their paces” so we treated the Brillo with very little consideration … standard needle, no changes to tension and no embroidery stabiliser was used in this sampler. We were pleased with the results, especially when the asterisk stars stitched out without a break.
Test stitched using a Bernina machine.
The Brillo spool feeds easily from most spool holders. Shown here on a Bernina machine.
If the spool does not fit on the machine spool pin, (eg: a Pfaff sewing machine) a simple home made modification will solve the problem. Set the spool on a pin inside a cup, and feed the thread up from the back of the machine to a separate thread guide.
Washable in the washing machine with reduced mechanical action
