2730C striped shima momen cotton yellow aubergine grey by the half metre
Shima Momen is a beautiful wide woven stripe fabric from Olympus Thread Mfg. Co., excellent for sashiko (incorporate the stripe into your design), patchwork, bag making and other projects. The weave, which is the same as the Kofu Tsumugi yarn dyed cottons, is loose enough to easily stitch sashiko with fine or medium sashiko threads. Woven with a striped coloured warp and a black weft. Ideal for wearables, boro style patchwork, cushion borders, or sashing, borders and bindings for quilts - anywhere you want a top quality stripe. Colours coordinate with the Kofu Tsumugi range.
Available in 5 yummy colourways.
Made in Japan by Olympus Thread Mfg. Co.
NB - sold in half metre (50cm) lengths, so please order '2' for one metre, '3' for 1 1/2m etc. Fabric will be sent as one continous length. Maximum length on bolt is 10 metres.
Zigzag or overlock the edges before stitching sashiko, as this fabric will fray more than regular patchwork cottons.
