The pictures show 3 different skeins...I wanted to show you the variety of colors that are available. Honestly, there is every shade of every color I can think of in the jewel tone family. Not a lot of browns and blacks...although there is a lot of warm colors.
Each skein seems to have a dominant color...so if you are needing more of a certain color, put a note in your order, and I can look through them.
If you want to pick out exactly which one...go to the numbered ribbon section ... I try to keep some of them listed individually.
Okay, let's get some facts about them...
The colors change every 36 inches...the edges are unfinished...but very little threads or shedding...there are no knots and the stitching is really reliable. They also seem to be an inch wide... maybe more. They measure 45-50 yards and weigh 3.5-4 oz ( 100 grams ).
I want to talk a little about recycled sari ribbon. It's very popular right now, and there is a lot of varieties, and it's a mystery to most of us...including me, at times, and I carry it..lol
First and most importantly....it is RECYCLED... and it isn't perfect. There can be little knots, sometimes it has a loose end, that can easily be sewn or retied. The materials are different widths and textures...or shredded, or lots of threads...nothing is uniform, or even makes sense.
So...what is good about that, you ask?
Well, it's fun, exotic, not very expensive, and it helps the planet. It gives us a peek into another world of colors and textures, and it sparks the imagination.
Most of us shop on Etsy for unique one of a kind things, things we would never find in a big box store.
Recycled sari silk ribbon will always be one of a kind...sometimes frustratingly so...lol. But it's recycled, provides jobs for the women in India and Nepal, it's a fair trade product, there is no child labor.
Please note that colors vary on each computer screen, and I've tried to keep it true. If there is ever a problem, please let me try to solve it.
I'm willing to work with you to make it right. Thank you so much for visiting my shop.

I also always get a tracking number for you...
I do ship to worldwide...It does come with a customs number, which I will give you....and it can be tracked with that....
Also, I will refund shipping charges if over $2.00.... I realize that buying multiple items does add up... and surpass the actual cost.
Please let me know within 14 days of shipping that you haven't received it. The post office needs to know as soon as possible to help us find it.
I ship USPS and they haven't lost anything yet ( fingers crossed )
If you need it sooner, or a different method we can work that out together through a convo.
