Color Kissed Silk hand dyed silk ribbons are all hand dyed and sewn in our Janesville WI studio.
We use 100% Asian silk. Our silk is a 16.5 mm weight crinkle crepe.
Ribbons are sewn to a ½” x 42” (measurements are approximate). Our ribbons are sewn to a point on each end. Sewn in wooly nylon edging, all ends have been treated to prevent fraying.
All our ribbons are pressed, packaged, and labeled; we find this makes the reordering process just a bit easier.
Our hand dyed silk are very easy to care, hand wash in cold water, mild detergent (dreft or woolite work great) straighten ribbons with a finger press, lay flat to dry. You will find the crinkle silks likes to draw up and curl, you can straighten and reshape to a flat smooth ribbon by lightly pressing with a steam iron.
Use the nylon setting on your steam iron, no hotter or you could melt or scorch your wooly edging.
All silk has been put through a lengthy steaming process to assist in retaining their beautiful colors. However in every effort to maintain the beauty and vibrant colors found in our silk, it is impossible to truly colorfast silk. This does not mean that your ribbons will run or transfer color to other fiber, this simply means that there is always a possibility for that, or for the colors to fade over time.
