Finally. We are happy to provide our Indigo Dye Sashiko Thread, dyed by Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya.
We have very limited stock, but hoping to receive the package soon. The order may be shipped with some delay. If the delay occurs, Atsushi will contact you for the possibility (for the possibility of refunding, please choose the credit card as the payment option, Not Paypal, please).
Due to the Covid-19, we have very small inventory now. It is kind of difficult to face to the fact to have not much stuff to share. I decided to add "A-0", which is darker than the A-1 Dark Indigo Blue, from my collection. There are only a few skeins available, and we do not know if Keiko can reproduce the same color again. It is quite dark - like close to black.
● A-1 - Dark shade from Natural Indigo
● A-1A - Dark shade with small spot of unevenness
● A-0 - Extra Dark shade from Natural Indigo - A little bit smaller skein than the others in comparison. Price adjusted accordingly.
These are green shade we created as a by product of above Indigo Dye.
For the gradient & green shade Indigo Dye Sashiko Thread, we successfully recreated similar color of AYG and AYSG. Please refer to the "Murazome Indigo Dye" product page for the details.
Indigo Dye is one of the most challenging projects for dyers. When we dye thread with Indigo, we have to clean the whole area to avoid mixtures from the other Natural Dye. The dye process includes fermenting the Natural Indigo Liquid. It wasn't and isn't easy, but so proud of achieving the stable Colored Sashiko Thread.
