Our satin blanket binding ribbon is supplied pre-folded by the manufacturer, with a single fold, from approximately 72mm down to 36mm and is one of the few satin trimmings that is still manufactured in Great Britain. This product may require ironing before use, due to creasing from storage. Please bear in mind that it is always very difficult to reproduce shade colours exactly on screens and we have tried to make the image colour as near as possible to actual colour of the ribbon. However we cannot guarantee this will be an exact colour match. The appearance of the listing photo sample will vary depending on the screen setting/resolution of your computer/mobile phone. Please note that all cut to order ribbon, blanket binding and trimmings are not returnable and are excluded from our returns policy. Some of our blanket binding stock photographs show a wooden bobbin - this is for display purposes only and is not supplied with any of our fabrics.

Satin blanket binding is often machine-stitched onto the blanket using a decorative, blanket stitch (if your machine has one), zigzag stitch (2.5 stitch length and 3.5 width), or straight stitch setting. It is advisable to test first on a sample (quilted) fabric scrap to make sure that you are completely happy with the length/width of the stitching before stitching the "real thing". A "walking foot" may help to achieve a good result when machining. Hand sewing may result in a "puckered" finish. Generally, clear (invisible), or matching colour thread is used. Blanket binding is usually applied at the head and foot of the flat piece of fabric, but it can be first securely pinned, using fine dressmakers pins applied perpendicular to the edge of the binding (to prevent puckering), then stitched all the way around. Pre-folded satin blanket binding is often supplied with the fold slightly off centre and it is the "shorter" side of the ribbon that you will need to keep on top as you machine stitch the blanket.  Stitch slowly to sew a straight line and catch the top and bottom edges of the blanket when you stitch… If the bulk of the quilt/blanket causes the binding ribbon to pucker, or the stitching is inconsistent, you will need to loosen the upper and lower thread tension to reduce puckering. You will need to create neat, mitred corners on the blanket and backstitch the mitred pleats into place…
