I LOVE this thread, it makes every project so much more fun and pretty. I'm always reaching for this over any other and its soooo much easier to work with than embroidery thread (because it doesn't split). I've used it on every repair project in some way and it always comes out so amazingly.
I will be honest - I only ordered this because I was paying for shipping for something else. I am so glad I added it to the parcel, because I have been having so much fun mending anything and everything with this beautiful thread. It makes me more happy than is reasonable to see these joyful colours brightening up some dull household mends.
This thread looks amazing on a plain background, helps make my average skills look much more professional.
beautiful colors, silky texture. Can't wait to use it! thanks
Sashiko thread, used for sashiko stitching and popular with menders, is a strong, smooth, cotton thread that’s perfect for mending denim. The strands are twisted together and not meant to be separated.
Rainbow sashiko thread is the unicorn of the bunch. Whenever I use this thread in class for demos, magic twinkles appear in students’ eyes, they stop listening to me and start asking about the thread.

The cheery colours and short colour changes add a fun surprise element to visible-mending projects. I don’t often use sashiko thread for darning, but I like using this thread to darn cotton athletic socks, to make it seem fun (in a Mary Poppins kind of way).
This thread makes a great gift – particularly for new menders and kids and anyone who needs more mending motivation.
Each skein contains 40m of thick sashiko thread. I've photographed a few examples of each colourway to show how they vary in appearance; each skein contains the same thread (just bundled differently).
NOTE: to avoid tangles, pre-cut and plait/braid sashiko thread before you use it. Or try Daruma sashiko thread, which come pre-wound on cardboard.
For more variegated-thread options, try Daruma sashiko thread or Cottage Garden Threads.
