Olympus Sashiko threads are imported from Japan and are of the very highest quality. 100% cotton sashiko threads like these differ from other embroidery-type treads because they are not made to be divided, have multiple very fine plies and no sheen, and are pre-shrunk. They're great for everything from heirloom art pieces, to useful everyday objects, to boro style mending and beyond. These beautiful variegated color skeins contain 20 meters of thread.
V92, V93, & V94 are short pitch meaning each color is 1-1.5 inches (2-4 cm) long before shifting to the next color.
These are also available in solid colors, and you may consider pairing them with our beautiful Japanese sashiko needles, thimbles, pre-printed sampler kits, and/or a beginner-friendly how-to book on traditional sashiko or boro mending.
