    What to do with sari silk ribbon yarn?

    I bought some beautiful vibrant-coloured sari silk ribbon last year ... and have just gotten around to playing with it!
    yesterday I dip-dyed some silk tassels, so I've used the ribbon yarn, a tassel and some beads to make a pretty unique necklace. It's bright! Click image for larger version  Name:	20190726_174741_001-01.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	126.0 KB ID:	11776

    The big stone bead is a natural turquoise stone

    That's beautiful! I went to a fiber festival today with a friend. She bought some beautiful sari silk ribbon. I'll have to show this to her.

      Very pretty! I wove a scarf a few years ago with some of this yarn, and the pictures of it disappeared with my r account. I like your necklace better, and you are giving me new ideas.

          I bought 2 bags of this ribbon several years ago direct from India (I'm a sucker for beautiful fabrics). Been thinking on what to do with it. Saw some woven bracelets with beads etc. that were nice too. Love, love your necklace!

            Thank you MaryJ Yes, I want to make more now, in other colours! I have these silk tassels in lemon, so I want to dip-dye in blue next, and do a blue/green one.

              I tried a bracelet with the sari silk ribbon... my problem is the best way to make it adjustable.
              I added a leather sliding knot on this one...

              My Goddaughter kindly modelled it for me ... it goes with her blue-streaked hair!

                    I am looking at these beauties, I like the joyful colours but have no idea what could I possibly knit from them. These look more like chunky yarn than ribbons. https://www.worldofwool.co.uk/search?q=Sari&p=3

                      5xhappy I think I would try something like this knitted chunky necklace.. ( pic from pinterest) I don't know what kind of garment you could make with it, although it's very pretty , maybe accessories? Handwarmers or hat?

                          I like to weave with it. Particularly as embellishment on scarves.
