Learning about cloth and thread 22 (koginbank)

◆Learn about cloth and thread 22 (koginbank cotton kogin cloth)
Of the 12 fabrics surveyed last time, Tsugaru Kobosha's cotton fabric Perry Pull was the fabric that I felt was the one that I could enjoy the most without worrying about thread compatibility (it goes well with any thread). I want you to be aware of the deformation of the fabric in the Kogin-zashi areas and enjoy it.
 Today's cotton kogin cloth from koginbank is the last cloth we researched. It is easy to thread , and even beginners can enjoy it with peace of mind, so it often appears in Satonobo's kits.

◆Impressions of koginbank cotton kogin cloth (according to Satonobo research)
⚪︎Flexible and stretches horizontally ▶️Easy to thread ⚪︎Warp threads are clear ▶️Easy to lift warp threads and move needles ⚪︎Warp threads are firmly pressed down ▶️Easy to stitch with any thread

The warp threads were sturdy and didn't move much, and any thread was comfortable to sew . At the same time, loose threads tend to fall apart when you pull them , so if you are concerned about the thread breaking, you should be careful when choosing thread. (I will introduce recommended threads later). Also, perhaps because of the strong presence of the threads in the fabric, I felt that the shadows of the threads were clearly visible after applying Koginzashi.
When I held the fabric in my hand, it felt similar to Zweigart®'s Davosa, but when I embroidered it, I found that it was a very different fabric in terms of the ease of movement of the warp threads, the height of the fabric, and the strength of the warp threads. Even if you look at the photo below, it looks different.

⚪︎Other thoughts
This is a very attractive fabric with its suppleness . If you are wondering, "What is it like to thread a thread?", I would like you to experience thread threading using this cloth . Also, since the cloth is flexible, it is also recommended for those who practice hand movement.
When you thread slowly and pull the thread, the cloth and thread will stretch together, and if you continue to thread gently, the thread will settle neatly between the cloth. I have something that I am currently stitching, and I am posting it on my Instagram reel, so please check it out to see how supple the fabric is, how easy it is to thread, etc.

◆About future research
 We have finally completed our research on 12 pieces of fabric that will allow you to enjoy Kogin embroidery. After this, I will move on to the overall summary. I'm starting to prepare for the event in June, so the next blog may be a little later, but I would like to continue learning about materials and sharing information about their appeal with everyone. Also, at the event, we would like to make use of information about your favorite modcos that you answered to a survey on Instagram. Thank you to everyone for your cooperation.
I think that I have fabrics, threads, and preferences that are compatible with me, but I want to know the charm and characteristics of the fabrics here, the charms and characteristics of the threads here, and use them to their full potential. I'm thinking of doing Koginzashi. What I can do, since I can't make the materials, is to appreciate them and use them.
Thank you for your continued support.

◆About the compatibility of cloth and thread
As I touched on in Understanding Cloth and Thread 3 , sensibilities vary from person to person, and of course, preferences also vary from person to person. Regarding compatibility, I am writing this with the intention of conveying that the stitching comfort varies depending on the combination of cloth and thread. One of the reasons for conducting this survey is that I feel that it is a waste to distance yourself from a cloth or thread based on your first impression. The purpose of the survey is to learn about the positives, not the negatives.

◆Regarding the survey content
This information is for those who enjoy Koginzashi on their own, and was researched by Satonobo using materials he kept at home. Please note that depending on the storage environment, there may be a discrepancy in the count or weight of the fabric you have. Also, unauthorized use of photos is prohibited. I hope you have a fun Kogin time.
