#SC006 Sakizome Momen dark grey green precut 35 x 50cm
A 35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) precut of Sakizome Momen - 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. #SC006 is a two tone dark grey green, perfect for taupe projects. 'Forests, herbs, flowers, earth colours' are the inspirations for these natural shades. Easy to stitch for sashiko, with a texture similar to the plain Azumino cotton range, but slightly stiffer.
This shade has been discontinued as a precut by Olympus, and I have only one left for sale. At some point in the future, I will reorder it as a bolt, but that means finding storage space for 10m!
The weave is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine, medium or thick sashiko threads. Ideal for taupe projects, wearables, boro style patchwork, or any project where an antique look is desired.
35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) - this size is similar to 50cm or half a metre of our narrow width Japanese fabrics.
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
NB - The 35 x 50cm (13 3/4 x 19 5/8in) precut size is smaller than a 'fat quarter' size (50cm x half bolt width). The fabric is cut and packed in Japan to this standard size. The code number in the title is the Olympus Thread Mfg. Co. stock number for this precut. The pack labels refer to this number rather than the main shade number.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
