the blues 3 x 100m plain sashiko threads pack
This coordinated combination of 100m sashiko threads includes #103 dark blue and #109 mid blue complimented by the 'bokashi' shade #151. Save £2 on buying these shades individually. These blues are especially beautiful for boro inspired pieces.
Please note - this mercerised thread feels slightly thinner than the 20m sashiko thread. The cream shade 102 is a slightly different colour from the 20m cream shade 02. Ideal with for my printed sashiko panels.
Ideal with the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. printed sashiko panels. One panel requires one skein of thread approx. if used singly, more if used doubled.
Made in Japan
How to open your sashiko skein
Sashiko threads skeins have to be opened out before use. Slide of the skein band first. You will find all the thread is tied together at one point. Cut through the skein at the knot, so all the threads are cut (you'll find these are the ideal length for stitching doubled). Push all the thread through the skein band, and then plait the thread loosely. Pull out each thread as you need it from the loop end of the plait, not the 'fringed' end. This saves time trying to wind the thread into a ball, keeps it tidy and you know the thread shade number if you need to re order.
