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.

This thread comes in two lengths: 20m and 100m. The 20m size – a bright white – is a good starter size, while the 100m option – a natural white – is more economical and less wasteful; you get five times as much thread but less plastic packaging.

NOTE: to avoid tangles, pre-cut and plait/braid sashiko thread before you use it. A side benefit is that you can take a sashiko plait with you when you fly; because it’s precut you won’t need scissors to use it.

For more sashiko threads, needles and kits, browse the full range of sashiko supplies.

Made in Japan from 100% cotton and packaged in a plastic sleeve by the manufacturer.

 

Slow mode

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.

I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEDT/AEST) for dispatch the next day (Friday).

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.

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
