I have many beautiful ribbons available and am just starting to list them. There are also gorgeous lace items, many vintage. And embellishments, charms, etc., suitable for your bears and/or displays. The prices are, like the mohair, reduced to less than half their retail price and the quality of the ribbons purchased from overseas in the 1990’s was superb, some not available now. The ribbons are suitable creative embroidery, embellishments of many kinds, card making, journaling, scrapbooking, incorporating into felting and of course teddy bears. The Toray ribbons are “silk” look yarn of a high quality and very flexible – they are ideal for wee and small teddy bears. The Mokubra ribbons are beautiful organdy ribbons made in Japan and again are very soft. Hannah Silks made their ribbon from silk yardage cut on the cross and dyed in the most exciting range of colours. There are bias joins in the ribbon which cannot be avoided.
I am having fun exploring my crates of vintage laces, collars and other interesting pieces gathered since 1980’s when I started showing at doll and bear shows. The pieces and quality vary – I have washed very few of them as they tend to loose their patina, that lovely aged look. If you purchase one of these pieces I will leave that decision up to you.
