#89-401 Lecien Cosmo Hidamari sashiko thread 30m fine red/burgundy
Just arrived! Lecien Cosmo ‘Hidamari’ sashiko threads, 30m long and presented on miniature cones, so you can measure off exactly what you need. They are a 6-ply thread, but the overall thickness is more like the 370m fine sashiko threads rather than the 6-ply 20m & 100m sashiko threads made by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., so if you want a larger amount of an inexpensive thread to coordinate with the Hidamari thread, the 370m range is the one to go for. This thread shades through red and burgundy.
'Hidamari' means 'sunny spot', a lovely name for this range of 40 contemporary colours for sashiko. The thread is super smooth and resists going fluffy when stitched. Hidamari sashiko threads include shaded, multicolour, denim look, and speckled threads (89 series), and twenty solid colours (88 series).
I will add some colour comparison photos with the Olympus 20m threads as soon as possible. The Hidamari colour range is subtly different to all my other sashiko threads, and provides a different touch of colour.
Suitable for any sashiko needles.
