Sashiko Cotton Thread

Sashiko thread is traditionally made of 100% matte cotton. It is strong and soft with a tight twist. Sashiko thread is non-divisible, meaning it cannot be separated into strands like embroidery floss, so you stitch with the full piece.

Size 8 pearl cotton or regular cotton embroidery floss can be substituted, but both have a different sheen and twist than sashiko thread, so the final piece will look a bit different.
