*PDF - Japanese Cotton SASHIKO KOGIN thread - 100 meter skein - THICK weight - White - SINGLE SKEIN - is currently on backorder. You may still purchase now though and we'll ship as soon as more become available.
This 100% cotton sashiko thread is Prepared for Dyeing (PFD). PDF means it has been bleached clean white, but it has not been treated to resist dye. Regular white sashiko threads will not accept dye. Made in Japan, this thread is perfect for traditional sashiko stitching.
Sold by the single skein ($6.00) or in a bulk package of 10 skeins ($55.00). Purchase in the bulk package and receive one skein free.
Each skein measures:
20/8 (20 denier, 8 ply)
PLEASE NOTE - This thread is for DYERS specifically. If you use this product undyed for regular stitching it will pick up dye from other sources, such as the fabric you're using, or washing with other dye-bleeding items in the laundry. We sell a variety of other white threads that have already been pre-treated to resist fugitive dyes. Please take care when stitching with different threads.
