This lovely, matte cotton thread from Japan is similar in style and thickness to sashiko thread, but it’s hand-dyed with plants!
Like sashiko thread, the strands are twisted together and not meant to be separated. Unlike most commercially available sashiko thread, this thread is slightly softer and comes in delicious (or should I say Temaricious?) naturally derived colours.
It’s ideal for slow stitching, darning, embroidery, cross stitch, tassels, pom poms and the Japanese arts of sashiko, temari, kumihimo and yubinuki.
Each thread card contains 125 metres / 18 threads in six complementary colours (three threads of each colour). Thread thickness is equivalent to no. 25 3/6.
Each thread-card colour palette is a limited edition; if you are planning a large project it’s best to buy multiple cards or choose individual Temaricious threads instead.
NOTE: Temaricious thread is a naturally dyed product. Please store in a dark place to minimise colour fade. Colours may be uneven.
Made in Japan from 100% cotton and packaged on cardboard in a plastic sleeve by the manufacturer. (Click here for plastic-free Temaricious threads.)
