Naturally Dyed Embroidery Thread


Stunning 100% cotton embroidery thread made by hand in Nishi Ogikubo, Tokyo. Temaricious thread is hand-dyed from found natural materials such as weeds, fallen leaves, pruned branches, leaves, berries, and so on. A lovely choice for visible mending (like sashiko), hand-embroidery, cross stitch, saddle stitch binding, fine crochet, tassels, friendship bracelets, wrapping, and more! It's best to store hand-dyed thread out of constant direct sunlight as fading may occur.

Temaricious is known for its naturally dyed thread and promotion of the Japanese folk art of Temari as well as the joy, excitement, and gratitude that connects from hand to hand and becomes part of a new work. Temaricious threads are dyed with plants that are found in the many corners of everyday life. The oh-so-lovely natural plant-based colors are traditional with a modern twist.
