Sashiko thread, used in Japanese sashiko embroidery, is a strong, smooth, cotton thread that’s perfect for mending denim and cotton. The strands are twisted together and not meant to be separated.
Daruma sashiko thread comes wound on a card, so it won't get tangled in your mending kit, and there's no need to wind or plait it first.
This thread is size 20/6 (thick 6-ply). Each card contains 30m of thread.

This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
