Product Details

In 2018, "One of a Kind" Indigo Dye Sashiko thread made by an accident became the most popular Sashiko thread in our store. We had only a few skeins in stock, and many shared their disappointment in not being get them.

In 2019, we successfully created the similar color of both "Uneven (gradient)" and "Variegated" color for Blue and Green from Indigo. It is our pleasure to announce the new batch in 2020, for the Murazome Natural Dye Sashiko Thread.


...Well. Since all of the thread are "One of a kind", I probably did not need to separate the product from the 2019 Collection. However. I just wanted to update what is the color shade looks like in 2020. Again, every skein has different shade and color-scatter. Please be advised that the photos are only the benchmark. We cannot guarantee that you will get the exactly same skein as the photo shows, but I can guarantee that you will get the best "one of a kind". If you have any preference (for example, Darker Green in M3_Uneven Green), please write it down when you check out. I will do my best to match the color from our inventory.

M0L-(20S) - Variegated (strong change in color) Blue - Lighter in Shade (Light Indigo at the darkest point) - Sold Out. Thank you.
M1-(20S) - Variegated (strong change in color) Green - Sold Out. Thank you.

M1E-(20S) 20-03 - Variegated (strong change in color) Green - Please check the photo. The variegation of Green is less strong in comparison to M1-(20) 20-05

M2-(20S) - Uneven (gradient as uneven) Blue - Sold Out. Thank you. The more "uneven version" is expected to be restocked.

M2D-(20JE) - Uneven (Gradient as Uneven) Blue - Expected to be re-stocked in July. Some are available for samples. It is darker in comparison to M2-(20S), and evenness is closer to the solid rather than the variegated.

M3-(20S) - Uneven (gradient as uneven) Green - The evenness is a bit closer to the variegated in comparison to the photo. They are still "Uneven" rather than the variegated.
