Another update of our beautiful “hand-dyed” Natural Sashiko Thread. This time, we are offering purple and blue natural Sashiko Thread.
Keiko Futatsuya, the Sashiko artist as well as Natural Dye artist, successfully continues her Natural Dye with “Logwood” and “Lac Dye.” Including “Tangala,” these 3 requires attentive process to keep offering the similar colors to provide with the same color numbers. We dye about 10 skeins of Sashiko thread every dye pots. Since Sashiko thread are hand-dyed with Natural Dyes, the color outcome is slightly different. However, we succeeded to come up with the “similar-enough” colors to provide as the product.
Just stunning Natural Blue and Purple.
We are proud of offering so many varieties of natural dyedSashiko Thread including Indigo & Kakishibu. They are just stunning colors.
They are all available on this website.
Blue Natural Sashiko Thread
Blue is one of the most difficult colors to dye. The Japanese blue with Natural Indigo is the most famous and popular color. We try to come up with other blue, which is a bit different from Bold Indigo Blue, with Logwood. This color requires multiple steps to succeed. Enjoy the kind Blue only Nature create.
Purple Natural Sashiko Thread
Stabilizing the Purple color from Lacdye was one of the biggest challenges in 2017. We had so many shades of Lac Dye (and therefore so many numbers assigned), and then finalize the story with 4 shades available for sale. Enjoy these miracle purple.
Beige and Gray Natural Sashiko Thread
Besides Purple and Blue, beige and gray are important colors in Sashiko Stitching. Logwood and Tangala happen to create the beautiful beige and gray by using the different catalyst.
