Olympus Sashiko Awai-Iro Thread Lemon Chiffon
New pale colour (awai-iro) Sashiko threads!
These new 40 metre pale color Sashiko thread skeins are made in Japan and by the Olympus company that has been manufacturing quality Sashiko products for decades.
Sashiko thread is not stranded like embroidery thread, you use the whole thread for your stitching. Just cut it into a comfortable length, thread your needle, and stitch. This thread has a soft matt finish and is about the weight of #5 perle cotton.
All Sashiko thread is machine washable. In fact it gets prettier with washing as it plumps up like little grains of rice.
