Take part in the Japanese hand stitching tradition of sashiko (literally "little stabs") with this beautiful, 100% cotton thread. Each cone includes 30m (32.8 yards) of thread. Sashiko thread has a tight twist and no sheen, making it different from a perle cotton or embroidery floss. Sashiko thread does not split like embroidery floss and is designed to be used whole. Made in Japan.
