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, Aurifil has created a program that heralds and highlights the very first thread weight ever produced by them: 40wt. 

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 the 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 the number one recommended weight for quilting and machine embroidery.

This year Aurifil has drawn the color inspiration from 12 magnificent Endangered Species, currently in dire need of attention, advocacy, and compassion. Throughout the year Aurifil will be using marketing strategies to work towards affecting positive change via increased awareness and targeted fundraising. To help achieve these goals, they've partnered with Earth League International.

Earth League International is an innovative non-governmental, non-profit organization that fights environmental/wildlife crime by merging the worlds of conservation, intelligence, analysis, whistleblowing, and media production. They are building the first intelligence agency for the planet.
