Creating Silk Ribbons
Over the years I have enjoyed a variety of creative experiences. Sewing, designing jewelry, wire work and making lamp work beads to name a few.
While I loved skipping from one art form to another the time came that I needed to support myself....thus "Silk N' Sassy Ribbons" was born.
While creating ribbons is a lot of work the end results make it all worthwhile.
I use only the finest Asian Crinkle Silk available and the very best dyes. The dyeing process is quite involved. The fabric is washed and prepared for dyeing. The ingredients for every formula is measured exactly the same every time to try and produce consistent colors. There still are numerous variables beyond my control that make it nearly impossible to produce identical dye lots. There can and probably will be slight differences with each new dye lot.
The dyed fabric is put through a lengthy steaming process to set the colors, however, it is impossible to truly dye set silk fabric. If the conditions are right some colors may bleed. This can be prevented by not getting your ribbon wet while wearing it. Silk ribbons should be washed in cold water using a mild laundry soap. A fabric softener/cold water rinse is recommended. Finger press flat. When dry press using the nylon setting, no hotter or you could melt or scorch the wooly thread edge.
My Crinkle Essence ribbons are not hand dyed. The fabric is not silk, they are a blend. The wash beautifully and do not bleed under any circumstances. Washing instructions are the same as those recommended for my silk ribbons. You will only have to press the ends.
Only solid colors are available.
