#201 80m FINE white sashiko thread

#201 80m FINE white sashiko thread


An exciting new FINE sashiko thread, in exactly the same colours as most of the medium plain 20m sashiko thread range. Fine sashiko thread has a whopping 80m in one ball!  Suitable for all your sashiko stitching, this thread looks great for hitomezashi.  Also lovely for big stitch quilting, boro style patchwork, blackwork and anywhere a fine, matte thread is required (it looks slightly shiny in the photos, due to the flash, but it is matte). Maybe used double or single, great where you want a more delicate effect. 


This listing is for shade #201 white.


Ideal with the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. printed sashiko panels as an alternative to their medium sashiko thread and perfect for the hitomezashi designs. One ball would be enough to stitch a whole hitomezashi hanafukin, with a bit to spare. The fourth photo shows the difference between the medium and fine threads when stitched (the two pink on white samples). The multicoloured sampler shows all the colours.

Sashiko needles - use either the smaller needles from the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. sashiko needles 4 pack or the Clover sashiko needles 8 pack.

  • 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.
