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.
