It's my first day off since working again, and I already 'almost' blew off the blog because I overslept. I did manage to get in an hours worth of work and a little bit of time for an update, so here it is.
I bought some cotton rope and took it apart, but its still not the right stuff.
As you can see in the second picture the cotton is on the left, and the stuff I’m looking for is on the right. Quite a difference, and I’m out of ideas as to what it actually is. If anyone’s got a guess I’d love to here it?
I know it was part a lead rope, attached to a halter for a horse, that I took apart years ago. I figured it was cotton because my Dad use to call them cotton lead ropes.
At any rate I decided to try and make due with what I bought, and so far I think the results look promising.
