|Both the colour and texture is steam set, rendering the colour washfast and lightfast. The pleating is semi-permanent. You may wish to alter the texture with steam (on the silk setting of your iron) or remove it completely by ironing flat to reveal the lovely Shibori dye pattern. Every part of the ribbon is unique and will be a beautiful addition to your creations.
The bias cut ribbon is made using silk fabric and is cut in strips at a 45 degree angle to it's edge. The strips are joined to form a continuous "ribbon" so your ribbon MAY or WILL have a seam somewhere in its length. This cannot be avoided but is hardly noticeable as the dyeing is continuous. The ribbon edges are raw and will fray but that is part of the charm of using this ribbon for bead embroidery, ribbon flowers, arts quilts, embellishments and wherever else your imagination takes you.
PLEASE NOTE the ribbon you receive may vary slightly from the picture shown due to the unique dying process.
