Really nice vintage rick rack woven braid type sewing trim, available in choice of
two colors: a harder to find lavender hue, or a light duck / robin egg blue green
shade, which is slightly wider in width than the lavender. No fiber content noted
on either roll, but both trims feel and look like pure cotton. Also, a burn test
confirms all natural yarns for the duck egg blue spool; the trim ignites fairly easily
with direct flame, but sputters and burns slowly, smells of burning paper/wood and
leaves minimal fine ash, all strong indications of pure natural cotton. The lavender
burn test confirmed cotton as well, probably combined with another undetermined fiber.
Offered by the yard, with substantial yardage available for each color.
the original old cardboard and metal reinforced spools. Both appear to have been
stored well, as we see no signs of fading, dust or deterioration often seen on older
vintage trims of this sort. Although we cannot see deep inside the many layers of
rickrack / ricrac on the rolls / bolts, they appear to remain in excellent vintage
estate condition; strong and stable, with consistent color. Purchased yardage will
be sent in one continuous length as possible, however occasionally we have found
several different lengths on large bolts like this, and/or factory splices. When
this occurs we always include extra yardage to allow for seaming.
