Most of you know I have a weakness for string, so when Kemps had boxes of turquoise twine on offer, I was powerless to resist.
I already have single balls of turquoise, red and purple, purchased locally. What I hadn't realized was that this is in fact crochet thread, made from hemp and linen. I don't crochet (yet?), but am happy to use it for tying up parcels and other decorative purposes. After all, it looks like string to me.
