If there are rainbows out in space, I think this is what they must look like. These beautiful skeins are loaded with colors, from pinks, purples, blues, greens, golds and oranges, to every possible shade in between.
These new tie dye ribbons are vibrant and truly breathtaking. Photos are taken in various lighting - indoor, outside in sun and shade. Each skein will be unique so they may have more or less of one or more colors, but still a beautiful mix of highly saturated and vivid colors. Probably not color fast, so don't wash with anything else. These stunning skeins 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,....
I also have these tie dye ribbons in other colorways - some with more specific colors, others primarily pinks/purples, reds or woodland & fall foliage colors. If you are looking for one color over another, like more greens, more blues or more blue-greens, include a note in the "instructions to seller box" and I will do my best to make sure there are some of the colors you request in the portion you order.
The number and variety of colors found in a full skein will NOT be found in the smaller, 5 or 10 yard portions because the colors run about a yard long or even two at a time and there can be duplicates of colors, which don't really matter in a full skein but will limit colors in a smaller portion. The pictures are of two different skeins, to show all the possible colors combinations. One skein may be heavy on greens or blues, while the next skein may have less of one and more of another or be heavier on pinks or golds. If you don't tell me what you're looking for you may be disappointed.
THESE ARE ALSO AVAILABLE IN REGULAR WIDTH RIBBON, AS SHOWN IN LAST PHOTO, averaging 1" - 1 3/4" width.

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. 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. There will most likely be NO 5 or 10 yard sections containing 1 exact color you like, so to be safe, stay with general shades like "earthy" or "bright", etc... Or just tell me a color you don't like and I will try and avoid a portion with that in it. Patterns are usually not bright, but enormously varied. 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.
Choose 5 yards, 10 yards or full skein from drop down box at upper right.
