craft materials: plant-dyed sashiko thread
This thin sashiko thread is hand-dyed in the same colors as all of our fabrics. The thread is available in single colors (16 yards each), 3-color palettes (earth, fire, water; 7 yards of each color), and a 10-color palette (3 yards of each color).
This thread is single strand (it does not separate into plies like embroidery floss) and it is best suited for embroidery/crewel needles in sizes 3, 5, and 7.
Note: If the thread is used for mending, it can be washed. It is best to use the delicate cycle using mild laundry soap and no bleach of any kind. Tumble dry low or hang dry. Thread should not run, rub, or fade significantly. Exposure to direct sunlight may gradually change the color of the thread, enjoy the natural change of color with time.
