Great & hardy needles :)
Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery technique that uses running stitch to create beautiful geometric patterns.
These authentic Japanese sashiko needles are my favourite – they’re long and perfect for mending denim and other sturdy materials.
You don’t need specialty sashiko needles to try sashiko stitching – a sharp embroidery needle with a large eye could work – but these are well made and a joy to use (when you’re not swearily stitching your way through multiple layers of denim).
Each pack contains 2 sashiko needles of different lengths.
Made in Japan and packaged in fabric, cardstock and a plastic sleeve by the manufacturer.
Head here to purchase sashiko thread. For a complete sashiko starter kit with instructions, try Sewing with Kate’s sashiko mending kit.
This shop is in slow mode so I can enjoy a better work-life integration as a shop owner and mum of two tiny tots. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

Australia Post has been experiencing significant delays. 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
