This listing is for one ball of thin weight sashiko thread in a pink or purple colored hue. Please select the color you would like to purchase from the pull-down menu. Each ball contains 80 meters (88 yards) of thread.
This thread is 100% cotton and made in Japan especially for sashiko.
This thinner thread is perfect for smaller or more intricate sashiko designs. It was made for Hitome-zashi (one stitch sashiko) and Kuguri-zashi (stitching - weaving). This thread is slightly thinner than the Daruma thin sashiko 20/4 sashiko thread and is the thinnest thread that I carry.
This thinner thread works best with the open-weave gauze fabrics that are traditionally used for hana-fukin towels, such as sarashi or tenugui fabric. It can be doubled up if a "puffier" look is desired.
A comparison of sashiko threads can be seen in the last photo. This thread is the thinnest that I carry and is the thread that is all the way to the right in the photo.
Please refer to the photos with the crayons for the best representation of the color. Crayola brand crayons were placed in each photo for color comparison and are not included with the product.
Please choose from the following colors:
Orchid Pink # 214 - pale pink
Rose Pink #213 - muted pink hue
Hot Pink #221 - bright pink hue
Purple #219 - purple hue with a slight gray undertone
This thread can also be purchased as a multipack here:

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.

I love this thread it’s my favorite! Its thinner and smoother than the other kinds of sashiko thread. This is my favorite for hand quilting.
