Product description

These Earth Silk spools are made by hand in our Seattle studio. Our 100% silk hand dipped, bias cut ribbon dyeing process produces a unique look with subtle qualities that cannot be found in traditional ribbon dyeing. Our process creates almost zero waste and generates a lasting work of art. Orders of under 7 yards will be sent flat, bagged and carded. Orders of 7 yards and above will be sent on a spool. These silk ribbons are colorfast (after washing) washable, dry-cleanable, 100% silk and are bias cut which gives them nice body or stretch. We highly recommend ordering samples (which we send for free!) if your project is color sensitive or if you have never worked with bias cut silk. We also recommend washing a sample to see how it behaves before working the silk into anything that may be exposed to water. The cut on the bias means in a continuous spool; there is a seam every two yards and the raw unfinished edges will naturally soften or fray with wear. Unlike other companies, we finish our seams with silk thread to create a more seamless appearance throughout the spools. In conventional dyeing the yarn is first dyed in a vat and then loaded onto a loom where the strands are woven together to form the ribbon. In this hand dyed method the action happens while the bias cut spool is tightly wrapped, that pressure resist influences where and how the dye is absorbed and can produce a shift in color from the inside of the roll to the outside. For cut yardage sales, the silk is carded and sent flat, up to six yards. Orders of seven yards and above are rolled onto a spool.


Important information

Legal Disclaimer
Wash before use! Our hand dyed silks need to be washed before use to prevent transference of dye (if they will be exposed to water in any form). In our wash process we cannot get the last bits of unexhausted dye molecules out of the fabric. For a dry use application this is not relevant as there is only slight crocking on only a few of the more vibrant colors. The bleeding that happens with our silks can be prevented by gentle handwashing (really no more than a light soak in a bowl of water) of the length you intend to work with. Since our silks are dyed and washed on the spool, the pressure present while the spools are tightly wrapped prevents the last few dye particles from leaving the material. Once you unwrap the silk for use on your project the last bit of dye will easily leave the fabric and you don't want that to end up on a bride's gown! A gentle hand wash will not alter the color of the fabric at all. No cleaning agent or setting agent is necessary, the dye has already bonded with the silk fibers. The excess just needs to be rinsed away. After rinsing you can squeeze the water out, lay the silk flat on a towel to dry and then iron flat if you prefer to avoid wrinkles. We don't recommend hanging the silk to dry as it will stretch and may become narrower than you want.
