  • Ribbon or Yarn...What do you prefer?

          I'm using ribbon. Don't have to worry as much about getting rubish all tangled up in it or any of the ribbon knotting up. And gonna be alot cooler on the body in the sun then 100lbs of yarn keeping the heat trapped. Only down fall to ribbon is you have to use more to get the same full effect as yarn, and you have to sew the heck out of it to make sure you don't turn out like a lawn mower when ya dancing and ribbon flying out everywhere.
          There should be a law against stupid people being able to breed!

              I seen both but I don't know I think each taste is a combo on the patterns used and colors. I know I thought of all the aspects before I settled on one thing. I have yarn but ribbon is cool.

                  Mom of a grass dancer...my thoughts

                  Ok I'm not a grass dancer, just a Mom of a grass dancer. I like using yarn when I make my son's regalia. It's the fullness that I like about the yarn look. I'd add a photo but I can't seem to figure that out.

                    I'm making my lil tiny tot's grass regalia and I am using yarn. It looks so much fuller and it is cheaper to get that "full" effect. I am accenting everything with ribbon though, I like the way the silky ribbon accents the yarn, it doesn't make it look so "rough"...lol.

                      I perfer yarn. It is true that yarn traps heat and gets tangled easily but I think it looks much better when you dance. I love the way the yarn moves, it's like a hypnotic kind of thing...yeah...weird.

                        I've seen some dancers use fabric strips instead of yarn or ribbon.

                        What kind of fabric is used for that? How to keep the edges from fraying?

                          I use rags.

                          Broadcloth ripped (not cut) and de-frayed. You have to take time to cut out the loose threads to give it that neat tidy look.

                              With both there are some down sides. The ribbon has to be cut and the edges burned in order to stop fraying. The yarn has to be brushed through because it tends to collect foxtails and bits of grass.-- Both make for really nice outfits.
