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 in my work...) This particular color-way is so subtle and gorgeous! I used a lot of the red, white, and blue confetti color and some of this one to piece a quilt, and now I'm using the cookies and cream color to quilt it. ***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!!!! 💘💘💘
