Hi everyone, this is possibly the daftest question to ever be posted to the forum... but, I'm going for it anyway.
What, exactly, is seine twine?
I live in the UK, and I cannot for the life of me find it at all! There is lots of warp cotton, but it comes in a huge array of thicknesses and wildy varying qualities.
I've found one weaving retailer of 'fishnet twine' but it's £32 ($70+) for one spool/cone! I get the impression that the seine twine Jane's talking about is more of a cheap and cheerful jack-of-all trades kind of twine? Is it like butcher/kitchen twine? Garden twine? Something else?
Can anyone give me some descriptors I can look for instead of seine twine? i.e. 12/4, 12/6 (which doesn't always work, cause half the yarns are in metric), maybe grams/metre, or a certain kid of twist or...? Are there certain European manufacturers I can look out for? Maybe they have different descriptors on their labels?
Any guidance would be very much appreciated, as I've got about 60 tabs open on my computer and none of them seem to be what I'm looking for.
