Olympus sashiko thread is made from long staple Egyptian cotton. Sashiko threads are 'string like', and you use the whole strand for stitching. It is about the same weight as #5 perle cotton threads.
This brand has been around a long time, it is soft and a little fuzzy when you first stitch with it but gets plump and prettier with washings.
Don't overlook this thread for wool appliqué and toy making also. It is one of my favourite threads for both of those because of its soft texture.
