Hand-dyed Persimmon Kakishibu Thread
Hand dyed in persimmon tannin (Kakishibu - 柿渋), a traditional Japanese technique that makes rich wood-toned hues, these threads are perfect for working with vintage indigo cottons. They may be used for sashiko but are thinner than most standard sashiko threads.
Each skein of cotton thread is 20 meters long, size #6.
