Fabulously fun

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.

So much fun!

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.

Amazing colour changes

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.

Made in Japan from 100% cotton and wrapped with a paper band inside a clear plastic sleeve.


Slow mode

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.

Local delivery

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
