Vegetable dyed Worsted wool twill tape
This is a material we use at least once a week on some project or another. In addition to the photos on this page, you can see its many applications on other pages of our site. It is a very good approximation of its period counterpart which was folded to bind cut edges on garments, bed hangings & counterpanes, sewing & fashion accessories, etc. It was also sewn flat to ornament upholstery and furnishings and attached to form ties for closures on a wide variety of period items.
The fiber in this tape is long and slightly lustrous and dyes beautifully with vegetable dyes. We routinely dye it for our own work and will dye it to order for your project. Consult the images for our most common vegetable dyed colors. If you want us to try and match something of yours, please send a swatch by mail. If you want to see what we have on hand, contact us for swatches by mail of the width/color you want.
Pricing according to width -- not all of which come from the same source; and with currency exchange rates. Choose according to your needs and your budget.
