Mauve is a dusty "wine" hue. This rich muted tone has a lovely vintage feel. Romantic and sensual this elegant hue will highlight your soft dusty rose blooms. We have two batches of "Mauve". Our 2 and 3 inch ribbons are slightly darker in hue and our 1-inch ribbons are slightly lighter. Together they are an amazing layering of hues! Mauve is a shade darker than our "Rose" colored ribbon.
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% Mulberry Silk Bias Ribbon. Silk weight 8mm.
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. Hang to dry recommended, but you can tumble dry on low to increase fraying on the edges. Iron when just barely damp on medium heat on the back side of the fabric.
