Have you tried Aurifil?
I am getting ready to load a custom job, which will be quilted with only cotton thread. So I decided to try out the Aurifil thread that I purchased to see how it runs on my Millennium. OH MY! I love, love, love this thread. It is the Mako 50 weight. Talk about a fine line with beautiful stitches. Beautiful! Plus it was super easy to balance my tension. Millie seems to love the thread too. I played around on my practice cloth McTavishing and doing feathers with accents in them. I may actually start working on my wholecloth after I get the studio moved, which is the real reason I wanted to try the thread. But now I am going to go and see if I can get the colors that I need for the quilt I just load.
