Item details

Meringue is a rich, deep cream. A deeper shade than our Champagne ribbon, the colour reminds me of the meringues my mother would bake when I was a child, coming out of the oven a beautiful, toasty pale golden colour.. yum!

Prices are by the yard. If you would like multiple yards, please choose multiples from the dropdown menu for up to 3 continuous yards on one hand made wooden spool.

Our ribbons are hand made by us in England from 100% silk and carefully dyed using colours derived from plants and trees. These processes - sometimes taking many days to achieve - lend a beautiful, layered glow to the ribbon.

Our 2.5" and 4" ribbons are made from crepe de chine, which has a gorgeous low lustre, a lovely drape and a beautifully soft frayed edge. We love the subtle glow that our colours have in this fabric!

Our 1" ribbon is made from bias cut silk habutai. Because it's cut diagonally across the width of the fabric, it has a bit of stretch to it as well as a seam about every 3 yards or so.

It should be noted that while we adhere to a formula for each colour, since these are hand made textiles, some variation between batches will occur. It should also be noted that some variation along the length of the ribbon may occur, due to the nature of the dyes - this is part of what makes plant dyed ribbons unique and special!

We source the fabrics from which we make our ribbon from suppliers who are deeply committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, as we are. It's important to us at Nettle that we leave the world more beautiful and better for us than it would have been without us ♡

Zip or postal code

Orders are shipped in 3-5 days of your purchase.

If you are in the UK and need an order to arrive very quickly, please do enquire. If I get the request early enough, I can often manage a next day delivery for a slight extra charge.

Delivery cannot be guaranteed by a certain date unless you'd like to purchase extra shipping to cover next day delivery. If that is the case, please contact me and I can set that up for you.

Some international orders may be subject to import taxes or customs, which I cannot control. These are determined by your country's government and may be collected by the shipping courier at the time of delivery. Your local postal authority will have more information about customs fees, duties and taxes specific to your location.

In an effort to make the process of purchasing from me as seamless as possible for my American and other international customers, there is now a flat shipping rate of $12 for all purchases leaving the UK. This will allow me to send your purchase by Royal Mail, with tracking, which I have found to be the most cost effective way to make sure that your purchase arrives safely and as quickly as possible. Shipping to the US averages 5-7 days but depending on where you are, the weather and sometimes, it seems, the will of the gods, it can occasionally take longer and is out of our control.

Orders to the UK are set at a flat rate that allows me to send them with a signature required, which I have found is the most cost effective way to make sure they don't wander off.

Expedited shipping is available for an additional cost. Please contact me if you'd like to add that on.


Payment is required before shipping. I accept all Etsy-facilitated payments.

Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
I regret that I am unable to offer refunds for my ribbons and textiles. I offer store credit under certain circumstances and providing that the order is returned to me in the condition that it arrived and within 30 days.

Additional policies

Alternative widths and shades of colour are almost always available. Just ask!

Since my textiles are made by hand in small batches, in order to ensure the high quality and attention to detail for which my customers are looking, it's not possible to make them to a scale that would facilitate wholesale prices.

A modest discount, however, is available on orders over 100 yards.
