Pre printed on medium weight navy cotton so you can start your stitching as soon as you open the package! The kit includes thread, needle and thimble. When you are finished the stitching, the print easily washes away.
Finished runner is 35 cm x 75 cm.
You are meant to use the whole thickness of the sashiko thread they include but some people do find it too thick to pull through. I find I can pull out a few strands to thin it down with no harm done. The stitches in these Olympus pre made kits are meant to be like short plump grains of rice and the thread does plump up with washing. Don't hesitate to use this project and throw it in the washer and dryer.
