Do you think babies dream in watercolors? Since they're typically surrounded by them, maybe they do:-) Wonderfully soft, drapey and full of texture. Excellent for spinning, weaving, jewelry making, scrap-booking and fantastic mixed media!
Sari Silk Ribbon is made in India by women working through Fair Trade. They take what would otherwise be silk waste, from cutting sari silk for wraps and clothing, and sew the pieces end to end, occasionally tying ends, to make beautiful yarn. Some of these ribbon skeins are overdyed, which creates fantastic shading and a great range of similar hues. In this multi-shade colorway there are lovely muted shades from a light and muted pinks, yellows and blues and everything in between as the color blend together, like very light salmon, aqua and lilac. Wonderfully Shabby Chic, all shading is softly muted throughout this product with no brightness whatsoever. Some of the ribbon is more sheer, some with a satiny shine while others are matte. Occasionally there will be a little pattern here or there or even a short section of a completely different color. I made sure to include some of the occasional colors in the pictures so you can see them. Some edges are frayed, fringed or lacy, adding physical as well as visual texture. Shown in different lights, this is a beautiful but muted pastel to floral toned colorway. Even the occasional off colors are subtle and earthy. In five or ten yard sections there may not be any of these occasional colors as they tend to be sparse and random. Ribbon width ranges from 1/4" to nearly 1" across, with a few having lacy, fringed, or frayed edges for uniqueness. Use them phat or strip them into thinner ribbon. Embellish scrapbooks, book covers, scarves, art yarn, luggage or purse straps, even jewelry. Great in weaving, rug making, or plying into your OOAK yarns.
First two photos are most accurate. The last has the blue as too bright.
