Have you tried the new Silk Road Fibers Silken Straw? One of my favorites and it is hand-dyed in these wonderful colors! There are 6 new shades on the way.
It really is a silk and is not meant to be laid so that each stitch is executed perfectly. Just let it lay as is. It is wonderful for hay, a broom, a thatched roof and really you are limited only by your imagination! It can be split in half, and even be stranded if you want to use it for hair… either human, canine or feline!
Just answer me this…how do they come up with these color names?
