From the Daruma company in Japan comes this luxurious line of Sashiko threads. This is a single strand thread that is not meant to be divided. The thread is prewound on heavyweight cardboard bobbins for easy use. Just cut your desired length and start stitching.

Love the thin #4 Daruma carded thread. However, this is my first experience with the med weight #6 Daruma carded thread and find it separates into separate threads when you are sewing into your project.
Looks terrible when you can see a single thread sneaking out of the stitch. Lord forbid if you need to remove a stitch. You loose the entire length of thread.
So sorry to hear that the Daruma 20/6 thread did not meet your expectations Gloria. The difference between the 20/4 and the 20/6 is that there are 2 extra plies in the 20/6, but they should all be twisted together tightly to produce a thicker strand without unraveling. I am sorry that the thread is not behaving as it should.
