A 35 x 30cm (13 3/4 x 11 3/4in) precut piece of Kofu Tsumugi cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., a richly coloured yarn dyed tsumugi cotton fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., good for sashiko, patchwork, bag making and other projects. The coloured warp and black weft gives this fabric a rich colour, with little slubs to add texture and character. The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine or medium sashiko threads but close enough to be able to do quite fine patchwork piecing. This smaller, handy size is conveneint for sashiko cushion panels or for collecting lots of shades for a patchwork project. The same fabric is currently available as two printed sashiko panels, kamon crests and geometric patterns.
This is the same fabric that was used for many of the sashiko and pieced blocks in 'Japanese Quilt Blocks to Mix and March', including the large blue sashiko and kasuri sampler quilt.

Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
