This is the same thread that is on the Daruma 40m cards. These threads tend to stay smoother and do not get too "fuzzy" when stitching with longer lengths. This thinner thread is also more suitable for stitching through multiple layers of fabrics (like quilting) or when using fabrics with a tighter weave. The thread can also be doubled if desired.
The last photo shows a comparison of sashiko threads. The thickest threads are to the left.
