Keiko in Sashi.Co enjoy dyeing the thread with Natural dyes. They are all hand-dyed with many natural dyes such as Logwood, Madder, Mountain Peach, and more. At the same time, however, it is(was) quite difficult to keep producing the same color thread with a large quantity (to achieve lower pricing).
Sashi.Co & Keiko Futasuya tried to dye specifically to imitate the color of Natural Dye by using synthetic dyes. These two colors of Beige and Moss Green are the best results we could get in 2015. After 2020, since we can now reproduce the similar color with Natural Dye, T-1 & T-2 will be discontinued once they are sold out. We also add the T-0 (Cream White / Ecru / Good to try to Dye) Thread for our Original Color Collection.
They are reasonably priced in comparison to the Natural Dye Sashiko Thread, yet it has a "look" of natural dye. It is dyed with artificial dyes, yet it is not as barking as the other strong colors. They will add great softness to you Sashiko project, as the Natural Dye Sashiko Thread would do alike.
#T0 - Cream Ecru White / Close to Original White / a bit more cream color
