Murazome Natural Dye Sashiko Thread
We are happy to announce that we restock the Murazome Natural Dye Sashiko Thread (by Indigo), dye batch in February 2019.
This project started as a by product of one of our popular Indigo Dye Sashiko Thread. It was a color shade made by accident (therefore we named it uneven). After we learned that this unevenness (gradient color, variegated color) has its popularity, we spend a lot of time and trials to analyze why it happened. In 2018, we learned how we could recreate the similar color.
Continued to 2018, we happily offer the Murazome (uneven dyed) Sashiko Thread with Natural Indigo Dye.
We assigned the number for the color (Blue or Green) and the shade type (Variegated or Uneven). The variegated color has the strong color difference, and the Uneven one has very subtle, yet gradient color in the one skein. Please understand that because of its character "uneven" and "variegated", every skein is different. All of them are one-of-a-kind thread. Please understand that I may not be able to send the exact same one on the photo. In the check out process, please let me know if you have a preference in the color shade, either darker side of lighter side. For the collection 2019, we do not have the light shade of Green (Previous M3L). Most of the uneven green look like between M3 and M3D. I will choose the best matching color from the limited inventory we have.
When we do not receive the comments on the order, we will pick the most "middle" one from the stock.
Again, please understand that the color will not be identical to the one on the photo. They are all hand-dyed by Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya with Natural Dye, which are affected by various condition.
