From Lecien COSMO comes the Hidamari Sashiko thread collection. These luxury Sashiko threads come wound on a cone for ease of use - simply cut your desired length and start stitching. Sashiko thread is a single strand cotton thread approximately the same thickness as size 8 perle cotton. It can be used in Sashiko stitching, boro mending, embroidery, crochet and more.PRODUCT DETAILS:
This thread is so beautiful! I do a lot of hand quilting and hand piecing, and my usual choice in pearl size 8. I still like that best because it's mercerized, BUT, for a thread this beautiful, I feel fully satisfied. (It's much better for my work than embroidery floss, which creates many frustrations..) This particular color-way is so subtle and rich! Very different to the eye than a flat pink. I'm using the cookies and cream variation it to quilt a white scrap quilt right now, which I'm doing with ombre threads (dark gray at the bottom up to bright white at the top), and it's playing beautifully mixed with my pearl 8's. The quilt was pieced partly with the COSMO Hidamari Sashiko Thread confetti in the red, white, and blue colors, and it worked well for piecing as well as quilting with this color. ***I may be a somewhat unusual quilter in that I often like to quilt with my wingspan, about 5.5' of thread at a time. I can get away with that using a French brand of pearl, but not with other brands. THIS THREAD stayed strong and worked well for the full 5 feet!!!! 💘💘💘 I'm very curious and excited to see what'll happen with this variation. 🍓🍓🍓
This pretty pink sashiko thread was a joy to use in a sashiko sampler & in a doll quilt. I definitely will repurchase this in the future.
Great thread and love the sot colors
I bought this to try my hand at sashiko and just love the pink color way!
Happy pink pop for mending embroidery :)
