Root Beer is not only tasty but if you move a glass of root beer around in different lighting, it displays magical color changes. It can be almost chocolate but then in the right light, it becomes a burgundy color or even deep rose. Super soft and drapey, this earthy color is deep and multi-faceted. Deep brown hued shades of wine, bronze, maroon and a little mauve. Not at all bright though - just rich and earthy.
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 of these ribbon skeins are overdyed, which creates fantastic shading and a great range of similar hues. Some of the ribbon is sheer, some with a satiny shine while others are matte. Some edges are frayed or lacy, adding physical as well as visual texture. Shown in different lights, this is a unique and yummy colorway. Most of these ribbons measure 1/4" to 1" across, with a few having 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, wreats, tassels or purse straps, even jewelry. Great in weaving, rug making, or plying into your OOAK yarns.
