Six yards of dreamy, romantic hand-dyed silk habotai ribbon in palest blush.
This delicate, silk ribbon is a pale warm tone peachy blush perfect for hand-tied bouquets, corsages or boutonnières and wedding stationery. Equally it would add a luxurious touch to giftwrap and would make a beautiful addition to even the most exhaustive haberdashery collection!
If you would prefer a cool tone pink blush please look at my other listings.
My hand-dyed silk ribbon is available in five widths. Please use the drop-down menu option to select the width you require.
The ribbon will be sent to you bound around card. Though there is an option to purchase your ribbon on a vintage bobbin if preferred. The vintage bobbins are sourced from a old Scottish Mill and come in a range of styles and finishes, your bobbin will be selected from random. The bobbins are approximately 6 inches long (15.25cm).
My ribbons are 100% silk habotai and are bias cut which gives them a nice body or stretch. Over time the cut edges will fray naturally. The cut on the bias means in a continuous spool; there is a seam every two yards and the raw unfinished edges will naturally soften with wear. The seams are finished with silk thread and just a 1/8" overlap to help create a seamless appearance throughout the spools.
As the ribbons are hand-dyed there may be small marks and slight colour variations along the lengths.
Please Note that you should only use a pH neutral detergent on these ribbons, and I advise no detergent at all if possible. Ribbons can be ironed on a warm/hot temperature, but I do advise carrying out your own tests first.
As the silk is a wholly organic and natural product and is all hand-dyed there may be some unavoidable shrinkage of the fibres during the dyeing process. All measurements stated are taken prior to dyeing.
