This uniquely changing color is dyed with Elderberries. In some lighting the color appears an aquamarine or teal, in another lighting it may appear more teal-dusty blue. This enchanting color is is alluring and best experienced in person.
Extremely pH sensitive color, if washing is necessary use only pH neutral soap (or don't and watch how the color can change before your eyes!) Also sensitive to over-exposure to sunlight. Elderberry dye has a tendency to soften in tone over time.
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 hand crafted antique style spool designed exclusively for Silk & Willow. Our spools are made from Acacia wood which is a fast growing renewable wood source. The spools are hand stained with non-toxic water based wood stain. While Elderberry color will last for years, with prolonged sun exposure colors can fade.
Each spool holds 3 or 5 yards of 100% Habutai Silk Bias Ribbon.
