plain hanafukin cloth 3 pack - sarashi cotton - indigo, lilac, light blue
Want to mark your own sashiko hanafukin (flower cloth) samplers? Or use the traditional narrow width sarashi cloth (an easy to stitch, slightly absorbent, traditional Japanese cotton cloth) for other projects? This pack contains three unprinted 33 x 70cm panels for you to create your own designs, in indigo, lilac, and light blue*. Use them doubled, with the edges turned in, to make traditional hanafukin, or stitch through just one layer, or cut into squares for other projects.
Ideal with our Japanese hanafukin sashiko sampler books.
Sarashi cloth is quite lightweight compared with other sashiko fabrics, but is very easy to stitch (even if you decide to go traditional and stitch through two layers), super absorbent and wears well. It is one of the fabrics traditionally used for kimono underwear! It is very soft and would make lovely lightweight 'quilts' for babies, using just two layers.
Made by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. in Japan.
*Each colour is also available individually.
