Thin weight sashiko thread- pink and purple hued colors - 80 meter ball


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:

    I currently reside in New York State and am required to charge sales tax on items shipped to New York state. ETSY is required to collect sales tax for a number of states as well as collect and remit VAT for countries withing the EU.

    Nice size and color on this thread. As purple is my favorite color…I wanted a larger size and this was one of the few sellers who had it in stock.

    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.
