Silkie Ribbon - This hand dyed silk ribbon is perfect for kumihimo. 10 mm wide, a center rib divides the ribbon into two sides: one side is more shiny, the other more matte.
The colors shift and repeat around the skein, every 60 inches (1.52 m) or so. That's the average circumference of the skeins. In some of the colorways, the shifts are more clearly marked than others. Obsidian is currently the only solid color.
Hand dyed - Hand wash separately in cold water and dry flat
45% silk, 38% viscose, 17% nylon Mini Skeins ~ 15 yd - 13.72 m
Full Skein ~ 75 yd - 69 m
The mini skeins have 9 full rotations, so approximately 9 times 60 inches/1.52 m. Full skeins have about 5 times the yardage of the mini-skeins.
Personal Note - I was delighted with this new find. Unfotunately the company producing this ribbon has closed their doors this summer (2018). I bought everything they had left, so as of now I have a lot of stock of most colorways. It braid beautifully and the texture and colors are luscious.
