Sashiko Threads

Sashiko Threads

Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the basic running stitch to create a patterned background. The geometric patterns include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern. The Japanese word Sashiko means "little stabs" and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.

Sashiko threads are made from fine strands of pure cotton firmly twisted together to create a soft matt thread.

Solstice by Sally Kelly

Solstice shimmers with the contrasts of midsummer with rich, golden hues playing against deep, verdant greenery. Explosions of joyful florals and dancing paisleys are calmed by quieter, more tranquil vistas.
