This listing is for TEN, 170 meter skeins of Daruma 20/4 sashiko thread. This thread is 100% cotton and made in Japan especially for sashiko but can also be used for sewing, mending, knitting, crocheting, knotting, decorating and boro.
This thread is size #20/4 (20 denier, 4 ply) 19 grams
This PFD thread is prepared for dyeing. Generally, PFD textiles have no optic whiteners or any sizing, starches, or finishes that could interfere with the dye.
The thread is bleached so that it has a bright white hue. The bleaching process helps to remove impurities, such as oil, making it easier for the thread to be dyed bright colors.
The cotton is also mercerized to increase the luster and strength of the thread and to reduce discoloration after dying.
Please note that this thread is for dying and is treated specially to pick up dye. If it is used un-dyed it may pick up colors from your fabric or any water bath. If you would like plain, white sashiko thread please choose non-pfd thread. These threads have been treated to resist fugitive dyes.
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.

Information I Collect:
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support; when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
