Google can't find anything on that (Azlaline) at all!! How weird. Oh well I think I'll maybe look at roving, as well as keeping looking for wools...ahh ignore me. just looked at the collinette site again. Turns out I wasn't looking at the entire colour range, lol. I've found the wool now...and lots more that I really like. I'm happy now.

Why wait? It's not like they're permanent - surely your folks couldn't object?  Undecided

This might be a really stupid question, but... What precisely is Colinette Point 5 Wool? I don't know a thing about wool... *blush*

EDIT: Ok, so I looked it up... It's just a type of wool, right? So, would wool roving work as well? It looks pretty thick to me, and from what I understand, it's unspun wool. If that's the case, couldn't you like... knot it to prevent it from becoming unraveled and use it in the same way? I only ask because it's much cheaper than the Colinette wool.

no no...wool unravels lengthwise, rather than from the bottom so a knot wont help BUT...you can felt the roving and make AWESOME dreads. Smiley

I dont mean to cause you pain here hon, but these falls have been being made like this for MANY years...this isn't "your" tut. Its how they've been done for a long time now. People have been selling them before you came along. Wink

.... Okay, what does that mean? Yeah, I know, I don't really know much of anything, lol. I was also thinking of adding some plastic lacing and some beads to it, just for a bit of texture. I'm really excited about making my own falls, I just want to make sure I have all the info before I start. ^_^
