Daruma Sashiko Thread - Thick 6-strand
A slightly thicker 6-strand sashiko thread, revealing clearly visible stitches, recommended for sashiko with a large pattern.
Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style dating back to the Edo period (1615–1868). Used by working class farming and fishing families to make stronger more practical workwear, a worn-out piece was stitched with layers of old cloth, producing a sturdy garment passed down through generations. Sashiko translates to English as little stabs, a reference to the simple running stitch used.
Sashiko thread is more twisted than embroidery floss and not designed to be separated into strands. 100% cotton, it has a matte finish, with no sheen.
Length : 30 metres / 100% cotton / wound onto heavyweight cardboard bobbins for easy use and storage
