20m sashiko thread NEW colours shaded

20m sashiko thread NEW colours shaded


Medium sashiko thread 20m skein.  Suitable for all your sashiko stitching.  Maybe used double or singly.  Please choose your thread number below.


Please note - this thread feels slightly thicker than the 100m mercerised sashiko thread. These new colours, launched in Spring 2019, are very subtly shaded, with a lovely soft gradation from one colour to another, and the colour changes are not as dramatic as in the other 20m and 100m I sell. Great for natural effects.


Ideal with for all your sashiko stitching.

Sashiko needles - use either Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. sashiko needles 2 pack or 4 pack.


100% cotton

  • 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.
