#502 tanabata multi colour 40m fine Yokota Daruma sashiko thread
Fine 4-ply mercerised sashiko thread 40m card, this increible 8 colour multicolour #502 tanabata thread is just stunning! The Tanabata Matsuri is a festival held in Japan on July 7th each year and traditionally celebrated with colourful fireworks, and the tanabata-ki, a tree covered with multicoloured paper strips where you write your wish. It is 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 (different colour range). By selecting between these ranges, you can make many subtle colour combinations.
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.
