Cotton Yokobiki Binding Thread

Regular price $19.00

Imported from Japan, this 100% cotton thread is the same kind used by professional yokobiki kanoko shibori artisans in Arimatsu and is a bit stronger than regular shibori binding thread. It has a medium twist which allows for some give when wrapping fabric, resulting in a cleaner, tighter pattern. Use for bound patterns using yokobiki kanoko shibori technique.

View how Arimatsu shibori artisans perform bound shibori techniques in the DVD Arimtasu Narumi Shibori: Celebrating 400 years of Japanese Artisan Design.

Approximate thread over a cone size: 4.25” h X 2” at the top and 2.5” at the bottom.
