Dyeing Process of our Hand Dyes
By the way, the silk ribbons are dyed by Jules in her home dye studio. Jules is the only one in her dye studio. You can be assured that from the time Jules receives the silk ribbon blanks to the time it is shipped to you, she is the only one that touches your silk ribbon.
After the dying process, the ribbon is washed by hand twice in hot water; cold rinse to ensure there is little to no bleeding left in the ribbon. If I feel the ribbon has too much bleed left in it, it goes back in the dye sink for more washing. Even though I wash the ribbon several times, I suggest you wash it again, by hand, if you want to use it in a project that will be washed.
Enjoy being able to purchase your ribbon in various lengths. The lengths vary from 1 yard to 5 yards.
Ribbon Colors: Red, Navy, Chartreuse and Golden Yellow, Chocolate Brown and Indigo, Bright Green, Bright Orange, and Green Variation.
Lastly, Hand Dyes by Jules always provides quick shipping of all purchases.
