A new kind of sashiko thread - Sashiko Lamé - has a sparkle thread running through it! Add a little magic to your sashiko stitching, which will twinkle in the light like fairy dust.This listing is for one 40m skein of #SL5 light pink. It is a four ply thread, so slightly finer than the medium 6 ply sashiko thread.Takeshi san writes -'Add the brilliance of "Sashiko Lamè" to "usual sashiko" We propose the fun of making “new sashiko” with an elegant shine. We made a thread that shines with glitter every time I stitch. It is fine and goes well with delicate patterns. We are particular about the thinness of the thread that can express not only traditional patterns, but also detailed patterns such as hitomezashi (one stitch sashiko) and kuguri-zashi ('go through' or woven sashiko). There are many color variation. We have created a trendy light tone color lineup that is easy to match with any color. Shine with every stitch! Sashiko Lamè is our new release.'Suitable for all your sashiko and boro stitching, or any embroidery where a little bit of sparkle wanted, including big stitch quilting. May be used double or singly.

  • Sashiko threads skeins have to be opened out before use. Slide of the skein band first. You will find all the thread is tied together at one point.  Cut through the skein at the knot, so all the threads are cut (you'll find these are the ideal length for stitching doubled).  Push all the thread through the skein band, and then plait the thread loosely.  Pull out each thread as you need it from the loop end of the plait, not the 'fringed' end. This saves time trying to wind the thread into a ball, keeps it tidy and you know the thread shade number if you need to re order.
