Traditionally used to wrap and bind temari balls, this finer cotton proves to be an ideal substitute for embroidery floss where thinner threads are required for your project. Use as single strand, or stitch with combined or doubled over colours for extra thickness. The botanically derived shades complement each other effortlessly and pair perfectly with Temaricious stitching thread.
Use for embroidery, sashiko, darning, mini pom poms and tassels, wrapping, binding and more.

Rika and Naho met in Prague in 2013, and have been learning and loving the art of natural dyeing ever since. Based in Tokyo, the Temaricious label bridges the modern and traditional in their revival of ancient dyeing techniques on cotton thread used for the ancient craft of wrapping and stitching designs on Temari balls. Largely self taught, the pair have spent time with Tokyo's master dyers and pored over books from the best in the trade.
Their approach to dyeing is as simple as it is resourceful - all dyes are primarily made from local plants, weeds, cuttings supplied by gardener friends; vegetable waste, and fresh indigo cultivated by family.
String Harvest is proud of being the first Australian stockist of Temaricious threads.
