Blue variegated thread

This worked beautifully on my class sampler kit. I love it and each design was outlined in navy thread

Beautiful thread

I really like this thread--the variation is beautiful and a good range, and it works through fabric beautifullly. I am very happy with this purchase.

Great Thread

I recently started visible mending with Sashiko Stitches. This thread is perfect for mending jeans and other fabrics. I haven't used the blue color yet but am looking forward to using it on a future project. This brand and colors are great. I want to add to my stash all the colors. Although I haven't used this variegated blue thread yet I've included some pictures of other colors from my recent patch job on my old work jeans. Warning! Stitching on old jeans turns them to a work of art and you will treasure them more than before. Plus, it is an addicting hobby. Now I look for things to mend. Lol

Now I'm looking forward to sewing everything! I got these to work on a noragi. But first I have to weave the fabric. So I can't speak as to how well it works as thread - but it looks nice!
