These silk ribbons are colorfast (after washing) washable, dry-cleanable, 100% silk and are bias cut which gives them a dramatic drape. Because of the bias cut, there is a seam every two yards in the continuous spool and the raw unfinished edges will naturally soften with wear. We finish our seams with silk thread to help create a seamless appearance throughout the spools.

We highly recommend ordering samples if your project is color sensitive. We also recommend washing a sample to see how it behaves before working the silk into anything that may be exposed to water.

These Earth Silk spools are made by hand in our Seattle studio. Our hand dipped dyeing process produces a unique look with subtle qualities that cannot be found in traditional ribbon dyeing. Our process creates almost zero waste and generates a stunning work of art.

In conventional dyeing the thread is first dyed in a vat and then loaded onto a loom where the strands are woven together to form the ribbon. In our hand dyeing method all of the action happens while the bias cut spool is tightly wrapped, and that pressure influences where and how the dye is absorbed. We hope you enjoy our ribbons as much as we like making them! There are over 150 colors in our line and we continue to add more as our customers continue to bring custom requests. Contact us with yours!

In the many years that we have been working with the conventional silk dyes we have encountered time and time again inconsistencies from the dye manufacturer's goods that impact our colors. What we have found, for instance, is that one batch of "Black" has a visible green undertone to it and the next batch of "Black" has a visible blue undertone to it. Calls to the dye manufacture unfortunately are not met with helpful comments. Rather than speaking about the noticeable visible difference in both the wet and dry format of their product, they enquired about our dyeing process, suggesting that our methods were the root cause of the color difference in the finished fabric. As a result; when we open a new container of dye we have to rebuild some of our colors so that our finished silks match the ribbon colors you see on your sample cards. This is leading to a build up of "seconds" that we have on hand of colors that are close, but not on the money. You can find these in our store here in Seattle and on Etsy. Thanks for your understanding if you encounter color differences and know that we do everything we can to ensure a consistent and quality product of the highest standards.
