Introducing TUBULAR RIBBON. I have not had this product in stock for quite some time but decided to dye up a small selection of colours for those of you who have requested it.
TUBULAR RIBBON is a knitted rayon tube approximate 5 mm in width (3/16 of an inch). It can be used flat as a ribbon for couching OR you can also thread it with another yarn/thread through the tube and gather it to create lovely texture. I use this technique to create small flowers in my crazy quilting and it is great in wool applique also. It can be used for canvas work although I would recommend a larger mesh (13 at a minimum).
I have nine colour combinations. The rayon absorbs the dye beautifully resulting in vibrant colours.
A few examples of how the tubular ribbon can be used and one showing the threading technique.AND a few more examples
As you can see, it is quite versatile and lots of fun to play with.
Have a great weekend.
