This listing is for a hand-dyed, 1/2", ribbon with gold metallic threads running through it. The ribbon is 90% rayon and 10% metallic. It can be machine stitched down the center using many of the novelty stitches on your sewing machine or you can use a very large zig-zag stitch. The ribbon can also be gathered and pleated. You will get a very interesting effect when you used a twin needle to stitch down the center. This causes the ribbon to look as if a cord has been stitched under it. It will add a lovely accent to many of your craft, paper, mixed media, and textile art projects.
The ribbon has been pre-washed to remove any excess dye. However, if you plan to place it next to white or a very light color, you should wash it again in cold water with salt or vinegar to make certain every bit of the dye has been removed. You may also use Synthrapol, which is a detergent for removing excess dye from fabric and fibers. Usually, just a burst of steam will remove any wrinkles.
