5 x 40m fine Yokota Daruma sashiko thread set 'tefutefu'
This pack of five colour coorinateted 4-ply fine mercerised sashiko thread 40m cards is called tefutefu (an old way of waying 'butterfly' in Japanese). Colours are shades #223 imperial purple, #210 lilac purple, #209 pale peach pink,#211 cherry blossom pink, and #222 plum blossom pink. Also available individually - the pack saves 50p on buying the threads one by one. There is also a (rather small!) free sashiko instruction sheet included in Japanese, with nice diagrams.
These threads are Daruma brand by Yokota. Suitable for all your sashiko and boro stitching. Use doubled for a bolder effect. Also excellent for big stitch quilting.
This carded mercerised thread is the same weight as the 170m 4-ply Daruma sashiko thread (same colours) and 370m 4-ply fine sashiko thread I sell (370m range is different colours). By selecting between these different ranges, you can make many subtle colour combinations in the same thread thickness.
Because it is mercerised, it won't 'shred' or go slightly fluffy when stitching. While it is convenient to have a thread ready to use on a card and you can easily cut the length you need, it will be slightly 'kinked' from storage, so just smooth down each thread as it is cut, before starting to stitch..
Sashiko needles - may be used with any of the sashiko needles I sell, including the smallest size from the Clover 8 sashiko needle packs.
