#24 spring green 40m medium Yokota Daruma sashiko thread


Medium 6-ply mercerised sashiko thread 40m skein, shade #24 spring green (moegi-iro in Japanese) Daruma brand by Yokota. Suitable for all your sashiko and boro stitching.  Use doubled for a bolder effect. Can also be used for big stitch quilting.

Moegi-iro is a very ancient colour in Japan, one of the colours used in many different tints for the juni hitoe (twelve unlined robes) worn by ladies of the Imperial Court during the Heian era. It is literally 'sprout green' - think of all the new greens in springtime. One of my favourite colours.

This mercerised thread is the same weight as the other 100m 6-ply sashiko thread I sell, but has a different colour range. By selecting between these ranges, you can many subtle colour combinations. This shade is also available in 170m fine sashiko thread, so you can vary the thickness for your project while keeping to exactly the same colour.

Because it is mercerised, it won't 'shred' or go slightly fluffy when stitching.

Sashiko needles - may be used with any of the sashiko needles I sell.
