This is the most beautiful color - rich and bright like Royal but with a hint of deep Teal in the mix. Wonderfully soft 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. My camera really had a lot of trouble with this color and out of about 10 pictures, only two are close to accurate. The first is the most accurate with the second being close also but with a bit too much green shading. So I grabbed some pictures off the net that are very close even though they're not ribbon. Every skein is different and if you buy a smaller portion (such as 5 or 10 yards) it may not contain multiple shades. If you prefer your ribbon more towards the blue - teal or more of a teal - green you can specify and I'll grab one that fits. Some of the ribbon is sheer, some with a satiny shine while others are matte. Occasionally there will be a little pattern here or there. or even an unexpected color - these little surprises started out as a different color entirely but were then overdyed with the Teal and came out something entirely new and fun! Some edges are frayed or lacy, adding physical as well as visual texture. Shown in different lights, this is a beautiful jewel toned colorway. 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.
