Stitches up like a dream!

I hadn't heard of Yokota sashiko thread before seeing it here. I started sashiko stitching with Olympus thread. Man, what a difference this thinner thread makes! Compared to Olympus this thread stitched up like a dream! This Yokota doesn't tangle, puff up (Olympus looks like it may unravel, it's so puffy) and it's easy for me to thread! It goes through my fabric easier too. Best of all I love the deep jewel toned color of this thread. I already have more colors in my wishlist!
