The waste ends from silk sari production are collected and joined together to form a continuous length of bright coloured silk ribbon.This beautiful ribbon can be used for crochet, knitting, felting ( with the help of plenty of wool to help secure it) embroidery, embellishing , jewelry, and adding to any project to give it a unique look....can be very boho. The eyelash in the title means it is a little bit thready...lots of character. It can be quite stiff when knit...I like it better for mats, purses, and tassels...not so much for clothing.
This ribbon is many pieces of silk, sewn together every 12 inches or so. It can contain metallic thread. The colors vary....mostly jewel tone, the edges are unfinished. The stats are 100 grams(approx 4ounces), 10-20 mm wide ( half to three quarter inch) approx 50 yards
