May 17/19. In an effort to get caught up with 'behind the scenes' work, from May 24 to 28 I will be not be picking up emails. Orders made during that time will be mailed out May 29th. Thank you for your understanding :-) Susan
Excellent cotton thread for sashiko stitching, boro stitching and visible mending projects. Also for basting quilts, and for big stitch quilting.
These are 100 meters skeins. Like other Olympus sashiko threads, this thread is made in Japan from Egyptian long staple quality cotton.
NOTE: The yarn in Olympus 100 meter skeins is a little thinner than the yarn in the Olympus 20 meter skeins. You may not want to use them in the same project. Also the 100 meter white is not the same white colour as the 20 meter skein white.
This Olympus 100% cotton sashiko thread is about a #8 weight/thickness. (Olympus' 20 meter skein sashiko thread is about #5 weight/thickness. #8 is a little thinner than #5)
