We now import a full line of 100% PURE SILK thread direct from Japan that is designed for Kumihimo. The thread is supplied for 16 or 24 tama (bobbins), 42 or 28 ends per tama, already cut to a length of 2.7m (~3yd) and ready to wind on your tama. This is a full 40g of silk, 672 ends total, enough to make about 2m (6 feet) of braid that is about 5 ~ 8mm (3/8") in diameter. This makes the perfect elegant accessory for your favorite Kimono, Obi, camera strap, lapel pin, or any item that needs a beautiful braided embellishment.  This thread is dyed in small batches by hand by a small, family owned business.

The sample thread card shown above left is 7.5" X 10.5", 4 pages and includes 116 shades at present. You just order the shades you need by number, and the shades can be mixed in a thread set.  We recommend that your purchase the sample cards before ordering because computer monitors do not show the colors accurately.

NEW!  We now carry a line of VARIEGATED pure silk from Obashiya.  This silk will really make your braiding projects stand out with an interesting flair.  These sets are for 24 tama and are expertly dyed with the colors changing throughout the length of the silk.

All of these variegated sets are priced in groups, and we don't have sample cards for these sets (a sample card would be almost impossible to make).  Order the variegated silk by Group Number and Set Number.  You will see the set number next to each sample in the group photos. Call for current prices.

Use only the very best material for your Kumihimo projects: Pure Silk thread from OBASHIYA.
