OLYMPUS Sashiko Thread  is imported from Japan.  This 100% cotton thread has a smooth matte finish and is usually used when stitching sashiko.

Sashiko Southwest offers fifteen (15) Olympus Colors.

A popular alternative is DMC #5 Perle Cotton produced in France. This 100% cotton thread has a gloss finish and a distinctive twist.

Both Olympus sashiko thread and DMC Perle Cotton should be used in a single-strand, as opposed to embroidery floss which has six (6) loosely twisted strands that are meant to be separated.

Sashiko thread should be used directly from the skein.
