We love adding a little sparkle to our stitching projects, and ITO San makes the most delightful gold and silver thread - perfect for hand stitching or carrying along as an accessory thread in your knitting and crochet work. ITO San is a gold- and silver-colored sewing and embroidery thread, where the gold and silver colors are applied to a white core and can be used for machine and hand stitching.
ITO is Japanese for yarn or thread. ITO – Fine Yarn from Japan are special yarns produced in Japan: a country with a long tradition in textiles. ITO collaborates with small spinning and dyeing mills and understands itself as an ambassador for the unique Japanese textile tradition. ITO yarns are distinguished for their special manufacturing process, extraordinary composition, and unusual color palette or variety and all ITO yarns are subject to fair labor conditions and high industry standards and are – in part handcrafted, in part from recycled materials – produced entirely by small family businesses in Japan.
We recommend a spool stand or thread holder so that the yarn can wind vertically from the spool. For machine embroidery, we recommend a 75/11 embroidery needle. Please test your needle and thread on your fabric first to determine if this thread will work well with your specific machine. For machine sewing, we recommend a 90/14 universal needle.
