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).
