Smoke is a beautiful rich, deep grey with a blue-mauve cast. It occasionally has a pretty marbling that comes from the dyeing process for this colour.
Materials: silk, ribbon, habotai, crepe de chine
Available in 3 m or 6 m, and arrives on hand-crafted wooden, custom wooden spools.
Nettle's 2.5cm ribbon is made from bias cut silk satin. Because it's cut diagonally across the width of the fabric, it has a bit of stretch to it as well as a seam about every 3m or so.
Nettle's wider width ribbons are made from crepe de chine, which has a gorgeous low lustre, a lovely drape and a beautifully soft frayed edge and no seams along the length. Colours have a gorgeous subtle glow in this fabric.
