One of my favorites in the ribbon yarns! Soft and drapey, this ribbon has a light and subtle luster, looking very much like "Black Hills Gold" - not bright but very earthy. It is the creamy gold of Honey blonde (I always thought that better than "dishwater" blonde - you can bet it was not a blonde that came up with that one:-) or even a Golden Honey. It has the slightest olive cast to it but only if you're looking for it. This subtle and earthy shade is fantastic for projects that want for a shabby chic or vintage era look to them.
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 color. Most of these ribbons measure about 1" across, with a few being a bit wider. Some have lacy, fringed, or frayed edges for uniqueness. Use them as they come or strip them into really thin ribbon. Embellish scrapbooks, book covers, scarves, art yarn, luggage, weaths or purse straps, even jewelry. Great in weaving, rug making, or plying into your OOAK yarns.
