Please select all options.

This is a 65+ grams (about 1/4 meter) package of medium weight sturdy fabrics pieces hand cut about 4" - 5" square.  The hand cutting gives you the irregular look appropriate for visible mending and Japanese  boro sashiko.  Don't hesitate to cut the pieces smaller yourself if you need smaller :-) 

They are a mix of 100% cotton fabrics, Japanese Olympus Sarasa,  Japanese Kokka, and Olympus solid momen fabrics.  You can feel the quality of the cotton these are made from, and the texture will remind you of old fashioned cotton fabrics, slightly rough with a looser weave, perfect for hand stitching. Pieces may vary slightly from ones shows but will be the same quality, and similar in colour, texture. 

 These are colourfast, machine wash and dry, but you should take them out of the dryer before they are completely dry because hot dry air is so hard on cotton fibres.

I've included a photo here of a piece I stitched onto momen fabric without pre-washing, then put through the washer and dryer.  I wanted that 'quilt-y look', but pre washing would almost eliminate it. It is your choice :-) 

Some of these fabrics are also available cut from the bolt.
