OL105I Sakizome Momen brown ombre plaid cotton by the half metre
This is a subtle ombre plaid cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko, patchwork, bag making and other projects. Part of the Sakizome Momen range (colours are inspired by 'forests, herbs, flowers and earth' colours), it would make a subtle background for sashiko and mix well with fabrics for a boro inspired piece. The colour is shades of warm browns.
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 a subtle plaid would look good.
Also available in charcoal grey.
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.
