Sashiko is a Japanese embroidery technique that uses running stitch to create beautiful geometric patterns. Cotton sashiko thread, used in sashiko embroidery, is a strong, smooth thread that’s perfect for mending denim. The strands are twisted together and not meant to be separated.

Daruma thread comes wound on cardboard so it won't get tangled in your mending kit and there's no need to wind or plait it first.

This style of Daruma sashiko thread is size 20/6 (thick).
