What kind of thread do you use for Sashiko?
Simply so, is Sashiko thread the same as embroidery thread?
What sashiko threads have in common: Sashiko thread is not made in strands like embroidery thread, it is made of fine threads twisted together to make a single thread (yarn). You use the entire strand when stitching with it. This difference does matter.
Beside above, do you use a hoop for Sashiko? Sashiko is a really simple form of embroidery. It's basically just a running stitch, and you don't even need to use an embroidery hoop. If you're interested in trying it, take a look at our sashiko starter kits.
Additionally, how do you open a Sashiko thread?
Handling Sashiko Threads

- Hold this point tight with your index finger and thumb, and shake the thread to make it completely open.
- Cut through all the threads opposite from this point.
How do you do Sashiko stitch?
Stitching a Sashiko Design Either pull one thread from your traditional sashiko bundle or cut a 20”-24” length of DMC or other thread, thread it through the large eye of a sharp needle, and make a single knot at the end. Bring the threaded needle up from the back of the marked background fabric.
