A natural hue like no other! This soft muted blue has a hint of gray in the undertone.
Silk, dyed directly with plant matter creates this magical hue. Due to the twists and turns of the silk in direct contact with the dye material (purple corn) darker markings may occur in random areas on this silk ribbon, adding a natural earthiness.
Each batch varies slightly. The current batch is a tad lighter than pictured.
Pairs beautifully with French Blue.
Plant Dyes are more subtle and complex than those created by synthetic dyes. You are purchasing a "living color" that is unique and one-of-a-kind. While each lot of color is dyed in the same manner, with the same plant materials, slight variations & unique characteristics will make each ribbon special. Each ribbon is wound on a antique style wooden spool. 100% Habutai Silk Bias Ribbon. Silk weight 12mm.
Our habutai silk ribbons are washable and reusable! Machine wash separately gentle cycle/cold, or hand wash. Use mild pH neutral soap, plant dyes are "living" color that can be shifted by chemicals and drastic changes in pH. Tumble dry on low or hang to dry. Iron when just barely damp on medium heat on the back side of the fabric.
