Dear members,

A few months ago I bought two different sarongs that have been opened up, and a tapis that probably was shared among two branches of a family (it shows slightly different levels of wear) and now consists of two separate panels. I am very keep to put it back together, but I am loath to do that with modern machine made yarn. Do you perhaps have a yard or two of hand spun thread that you could spare? Or do you know someone who might have it? All in all I need about five yards, but two, or even one and a half would probably suffice for the tapis.

The colour could be ecru (natural colour of cotton), ochre, black, brown or brownish, morinda - in other words, pretty much anything likely to have been produced in a traditional culture. If money is a consideration, yes I am willing to shell out some money for this purpose.

Your help will be much appreciated.
Kind regards,
Peter

Hi Peter
If no one has what you need, you might try a seller on Etsy.com. This one looks promising https://www.etsy.com/listing/190889297/ ... _active_12

The nice thing about dealing directly with the crafts person is that you can ask for special orders and they will often do it for the same price as what they normally sell.

They sell things other than hemp, but it seemed like a place to start.

Good luck!
Anna

Hallo Anna,

Thanks for the tip! On the site I have not found exactly what I need yet, but the site looks promising, and I will continue looking over the next few days.

Kind regards,
Peter
