OL100N Sakizome Momen 'linen look' cotton by the half metre
Just in stock in this new colour! This is a thicker cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko, patchwork, bag making and other projects. It is made to look like old cloth, with subtle colours (the range is inspired by 'forests, herbs, flowers and earth' colours), and feels like a soft, handwoven cotton. OL100N is a two tone natural linen colour fabric. The inspiration for the new shades was 'denim' and it would be great for contrasting boro on jeans! Unlike denim, this is a flatweave, so easier to stitch for sashiko.
This colour is the ideal compliment to the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. kogin 20 count linen in natural, for backing cushions, mixing with the kogin fabric for bags etc.
The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine, medium or thick sashiko threads. Ideal for wearables, boro style patchwork, or any project where an antique look is desired.
Shades OL100S greenish blue, OL100T 'indigo' blue, OL100U blue black, and OL100X dark red are also in stock.
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
NB - sold in half metre (50cm) lengths, so please order '2' for one metre, '3' for 1 1/2m etc. Fabric will be sent as one continous length. Maximum length on bolt is 5 metres.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
