This botanically dyed, 100% cotton Japanese Sashiko thread is sure to lend a special touch to your next hand sewing project. Local artist Sarah Tremaine grows her own dye materials on her Virginia farm and mixes dyes in small batches to achieve her rainbow of beautiful, natural colors.
We have put together 3 color palettes of thread in Cool, Warm, and Neutral tones, to suit a variety of projects. These threads make a thoughtful gift for the stitcher in your life. This set would make be a lovely expansion to our Hand Mending Kit.
Each bundle comes packaged in a gift box with a small beeswax heart for waxing your thread.
Spools of approx. 20yds (18.6m), Medium width, matte thread surface
Please wash your threads with cool water and pH neutral dish soap (Dawn, Ecover, Meyers, etc.) and hang to dry. The colors are fast and won't bleed, but not suitable for living in full sunlight for they will fade. It is part of the charm of the natural dyes.
