2720E striped shima momen cotton brick red aubergine grey by the half metre
Shima Momen is a beautiful woven striped fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko (incorporate the stripe into your design), patchwork, bag making and other projects. Woven with thick and thin stripes, with five colours in the striped coloured warp and a black weft, it coordinates easily with many fabrics, and is perfect with Kofu Tsumugi fabric and my preprinted sashiko panels.The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine or medium sashiko threads. Ideal for wearables, boro style patchwork, cushion borders, or sashing, borders and bindings for quilts - anywhere you want a top quality stripe.
Available in 5 delicious colourways
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
NB - sold in half metre (50cm) lengths, so please order '2' for one metre, '3' for 1 1/2m etc. Fabric will be sent as one continous length. Maximum length on bolt is 10 metres.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
