Yes overall, these really are this bright and colorful! This was ordered special from my one supplier who will customize enormous orders for me. These skeins are the BRIGHTEST EVER!!! Much brighter than the average skein of the their regular non-fuzzy ribbon. The pictures don't do this justice so I will be taking more. Super Soft and Stunning Colors and Texture! These fabulous ribbons can be used in their entire lengths or are great for projects where you need smaller lengths of LOTS of colors. Just cut up a foot of this one, 8 inches of that one.... These new skeins are just fabulous! I request particular color schemes and my supplier always accommodates me in that. These are breathtaking:-))
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. In these colorways there are Greens (both bright and earthy), Reds (bright and earthy), Purples, Teals, and Golds, Rust, Rich Browns, as well as a few light pastels. Some sections will have patterns. Some of these ribbons are 3/4" - 1" but some measure as much as 4+ inches across, with a few having lacy, fringed, or frayed edges for uniqueness. Every skein is absolutely unique. 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 or wreath making, or plying into your OOAK yarns. If you prefer bolder, earthier, more floral colors, or any other preference such as more golds, reds, etc..., just include a note in the "instructions to merchant" section of your order. These skeins are all one of a kind and as such, have a great deal of variety in both colors and shading. With the ribbon being so wide, there is a lot of silk material to a yard, much more than the thinner ribbon colors. In the smaller sections, such as the 5 or 10 yard pieces, there will not be as many colors represented or as much variance in thickness. I am almost out but have more of this on order.
Choose 5 yards, 10 yards or full skein from drop down box at upper right. Full skeins average 35 - 45 yards, depending on width of ribbon. Please keep in mind that the colors are only about a yard long each, so in a small portions such as 5 or 10 yards, you will only be getting 4 - 10 colors. If you are looking for a particular color scheme - brights, florals, earthy, etc... please let me know. If you don't like a particular color in your smaller portions, you may also let me know. lf you don't specify, I will send what comes off the skein. Especially in a small portion, such as the 5 - 10 yard portions, 1 or 2 non-bright colors (or a color you don't like) may be disappointing. This is why notes are helpful.
