Default Re: Sore throat after ribbon burning

I looked this stuff up after reading the first post, b/c as crazy as it sounds, I had the same experience. Apparently, some of the grosgrain ribbons have nylon in them instead of being 100% polyester. The nylon is apparently causing more of the smoke than the polyester does and emits a horrible smell. Many velvets are made from 100% nylon. That may explain some of it. HTH
