This collection contains all 20 colours of the new Olympus fine sashiko thread in 10-metre skeins.
These threads are half the thickness of standard Olympus sashiko threads and have a smooth feel and natural sheen.
The pack includes two handy printed bobbin cards, on which you can wind your skeins to keep them tidy and organised. It also includes a QR code that you can use to download a pattern sheet and instructions (in Japanese) to stitch a colourful Hana Fukin (sashiko sampler cloth) – sampler fabric not included.
Made in Japan from 100% cotton wrapped with a paper band, packaged with cardboard and paper in a clear plastic sleeve.

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
