Really rich dark chocolate color, super soft and drapey, this ribbon has a light luster and is just beautiful. Of average width and suuuuuuper soft. My camera struggles with this color. If I photograph it in sunlight there is back flash from the bright light on it. If I photograph it inside, the flash creates back flash because the color is so dark my camera insists on flash. It has less rosiness to it than "Box 'O Chocolates", which is mulit-toned with more colors. This one is mostly one shade with little variance to it.
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 ribbon yarn. Some edges are frayed or lacy, adding physical as well as visual texture. Shown in different lights, this is an incredibly versatile and earthy color. The last one had sun shining on it which added a golden hue, which it does not have. Many have lacy, fringed, or frayed edges for uniqueness. Embellish scrapbooks, book covers, scarves, art yarn, luggage, wreaths or purse straps, even jewelry. Great in weaving, rug making, or plying into your OOAK yarns.
Listing is for five yards, ten yards or full skein. Skein yardage varies a bit with thickness of ribbon but would typically be 50 - 60 yards or more per skein. Choose from drop-down box at upper right.
