April 10/19. Two notes: Yoko Saito books are back in stock and I've aded new dyed yarn fabric bundles. Also, working conditions are a little challenging from the big move :-) so please let me know if you find any errors, or have any concerns with your orders. Happy stitching! Susan
Order by the half meter (2 units = 1 meter) Your fabric will be sent in one continuous piece.
This is the same 42/43" wide 100% cotton fabric I have been using and selling for years for sashiko stitching. It is easy to stitch with the thick sashiko needles and threads. It has good body, a smooth surface, and is a bit heavier than regular quilting cottons, but still lightweight. It washes and wears well. The color will not bleed or fade as the indigo colour is commercially dyed. I always prewash before I sew, but it isn't necessary. But note: It is a very dark indigo colour, some of you will insist it is black it is so dark :-) There are other Japanese cotton fabrics on this website you could choose if that isn't suitable for your project, look for either a momen cotton in indigo blue or a dark blue in the dyed yarn fabrics.Use the search function (the little magnifying glass at the top right of this page).
