5/12: These are getting hard for me to get so I am only selling the yardage now as I'm afraid I'll run to soon. As soon as they're available to me again, I will have the full skeins in stock.
New colors for those liking more subtle or monochromatic looks to their BOHO projects. These pictures don't even do this justice because not only are they beautiful, but they're cloud-like in their lofty and fluffed out lightness. Super Soft and Stunning shades and Texture! These fabulous ribbons can be used in their entire lengths or are great for projects where you need smaller lengths. 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. I'm a huge fan of earthy or subtle color hues and These are breathtaking:-)) Some are plainer, without much color - just an occasional little surprise (like picture #2). Others have a fair amount of sudden color to POP the otherwise monochromatic colorway, as in the skein on right in first pic. If you have a preference, please indicate in the instructions to seller box at checkout. Small portions like the 5 or 10 yard sections may not have any or little color. There are occasionally mixed silks in here - a bit of chiffon, a taffeta, Zari, etc.. adding to it's lovely textured appearance.
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 from drop down box at upper right.
