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.
This sarashi is mid-range, with a weave of about 24 threads per in/10 threads per cm, great for making household linens like napkins, handkerchiefs, and the classic multipurpose “hana-fukin” (Japanese “flower cloth”).
Made in Japan by Miyamoto. Available in white by the inch, in 13 in. width.
