Kona® Cotton to Aurifil Thread Conversion Chart Updated!

Kona® Cotton Solids now come in 303 colors, so I thought it was about time to update the Kona® Cotton to Aurifil Thread Conversion Chart that I put together a few years ago. 

Kona to Aurifil Thread Conversion

The original list of colors was provided by and I added a bunch of missing colors myself by matching up my color cards for a few hours. Aurifil has less colors than Kona® Cotton, so the colors chosen for this chart are a close but not exact match and there are duplicates.

Hope this is helpful for you!

    I just wanted to thank you again for providing us with this information. I just finished a quilt using Kona Petunia and used your chart to find perfectly matching thread. Without your chart, I’m certain I would have never found a match.
