Polyester Ribbon 6mm 25Yards
Ribbons are polyester and will not shrink or fade. However, the fabric you are stitching them to may, so it is always a good idea to pre-wash and dry your base fabric as you would the finished project. Of course, if you are making something that will never be washed, that is not necessary.
– Be careful when ironing ribbons. Set the iron temperature to a lower synthetic setting. Before sewing any project, I like to lightly press the ribbons with a steam iron to smooth them and prepare them for stitching. Once the ribbons are stitched to the base fabric, make sure you continue to press them with a cool iron. Or, if the iron is on a cotton setting, press the ribbons from the wrong side of the fabric or use a pressing cloth to protect them.
