Silk Chiffon & Georgette Ribbon Yarns - Prices from
Darn Good Yarn
These beautiful, upcycled Silk Chiffon & Georgette Fabrics have been torn into strips and sewn together to form a soft Ribbon Yarn. It is created by women in fair trade co-ops in rural India.
Silk Chiffon Ribbon is made from Reclaimed Silk Fabric :
Each skein is unique and many have patterns & embellishments hidden within them ! Each skein has a unique reference code so you get to choose the exact colour/pattern you see in the photo.
Georgette Ribbon is made from New Recycled Silk Fabric :
Silk Fabric left over from the manufacture of clothing. The colours are very similar from skein to skein, but if you have a particular need for bright or darker shades then please let me know when you order.
Both types of fabric would otherwise have been put into landfill so giving them a new lease of life helps the planet and the women who earn a living creating these wonderful yarns !!
Though every care is taken to ensure all the material is 100% Silk due to the nature of recycling there may some blends present.
They can be used for just about anything you can imagine !! Such as Knitting, Crochet, Weaving, Jewellery Making, Home Decor, Mixed Media
To care for these all these ribbon yarns please hand wash cold, lay flat to dry or dry clean.
