Tahoe is a deep blue, a true mid-indigo. Indigo is a dye that really seems to have a mind of its own. For this reason, every batch is different from the last. I find this a lovely attribute to the ribbon - catching that moment in time. Some batched are highly marbled, some less so. It's best to be aware of that when choosing this ribbon. I think it's very rich and beautiful!
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.
