Rolls of spliced hemp in the foreground and a large roll of un-spliced ramie, stripped from the twig but waiting to be spliced.  Note that the ramie is slightly lighter in colour than the hemp which is one of the reasons that it is preferred as it does not take so much effort to bleach it white - Xian Ma village, Hou Chang township, Puding county, Guizhou province 0010y02.jpg
