April 25/19. NEW SASHIKO THREADS!! Very interesting new variegated skeins, and at long last new colours in the 100 meter skeins! Happy stitching :-) Susan
This is a lightweight cotton tsumugi fabric. It looks like shot cotton, and is colorfast and washable without significant shrinkage. Manufactured by Olympus, Japan, this fabric is based on the traditional Japanese tsumugi fabric and the colors, especially the lighter colors, have an earthy muted quality which is very like the color the original process would have created.
This Tsumugi fabric has excellent drape. Suitable for clothing, quilting, applique, and stitching. There are matching sashiko preprinted panels available on this website also.
Order by the half meter lengths (19" x 44" wide) 1 unit will be 1/2 meter, 2 units will be 1 meter and so on. Your fabric will be sent in one continuous piece, up to 5 meters. I've included a photograph of my hippari coat to show how the fabric drapes.
