As I always mention in my SNS or website, it is very important to have the good thread when you enjoy Sashiko. In fact, it is more difficult to "find" the best thread than choosing the one. As a group of Sashiko artists, we always get the thread from the same Manufacture. However, it isn't easy to get the color we want all the time, although we have more than color 15 variations available. Keiko Futatsuya started dyeing the thread by herself with Natural Botanical Dye after experiencing the challenge in finding the appropriate color thread.
They are very beautiful. You can check it on Etsy's website. At the same time, we realized, it wasn't budget friendly to use the Botanical Dye Sashiko thread only on her project. Then, she talked to the manufacturer, came up with this unique colored Sashiko thread; similar color to Natural Dye and reasonable price.
These are 145-meter skein thread for the best Sashiko stitching purpose. We as "Sashi.Co / Upcycle Stitches" use this great Sashiko thread to produce our Sashiko art pieces (including Original and Natural Dye Sashiko thread).
As you can see, it is a huge skein of thread. 145 meter is about 475 feet. One skein is good for a few Sashiko project if you are making a table runner or a bag. We have 5 variegated color selection, dyed by Coron Thread company with synthetic dyes.
