Sarashi is a soft, gauzy cotton fabric with a wide range of uses. In Japan, sarashi is used to make everything from clothing to dish cloths, and is an ideal base fabric for sashiko embroidery. It comes in a range of finer and coarser weaves and features occasional natural slubs.
This sarashi is premium range, with a weave of about 32 threads per in/13 threads per cm, great for making household linens like napkins, handkerchiefs, and the classic multipurpose “hana-fukin” (Japanese “flower cloth”).
