Daruma Kogin Thread


The thickest of Daruma's sashiko threads for slow stitch projects.

"Kogin" is a type of Sashiko stitch born in Japan's Tsugaru district during the Edo period. Kogin has thicker, tighter geometric patterns with the threads tightly embroidered together.

Designed to reinforce layers of fabric, this thread has a natural matte finish, with the seams becoming fluffy and beautiful when threaded into a cloth. This is a single strand thread that is not meant to be divided. 

Length : 20 metres / 100% cotton / prewound onto heavyweight cardboard bobbins for easy use and storage

For thinner threads, see our Sashiko Fine 4-strand thread and Thick 6-strand thread 

Daruma thread made in Japan by the Yokota Corporation.

In 1901 Chozaemon Yokota set out to become the maker of the highest quality sewing thread in the world. This 'quality is timeless'  principle is embodied in their threads, cloths and sewing products, distributed widely across Japan.
