20m sashiko thread shaded to white

20m sashiko thread shaded to white


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. Each colour is shaded to white, an effect known as 'bokashi' in Japanese. Shades are slightly different to the similar threads in the 100m sashiko thread range.


Ideal with the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. printed sashiko panels as an alternative to the 100m sashiko thread. One panel requires five skeins of thread.

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

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.
