This is silk ribbon made from china silk that has been hand dyed with red cabbage and iron. It soaked in the iron bath for two weeks.
It is 1.5 inches wide by 108 plus inches (3 yards) long.
The colour is a pales with tones of blue and brown markings. The picture of the full piece of fabric best shows the colour. The colour is not solid but varied throughout the piece.
The edges are raw. I have tried to pull off the excess threads but some might work out.
The ribbon has been machine washed cold twice and air dried. I use these on my own clothes, therefore machine washable is a must. However, if bleach is added, the colour will not stay true. I find this colour also softens after many washings (20 plus).
Everything I use to make these ribbons I can I compost and put back in the earth. There is nothing toxic in the dying process.
Please contact me if you would like a different width or length. Both are possible because I still have some of this dye lot not torn.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
