Straight lines & Curves

Not quite what I thought it would be

I am experimenting with dying and embroidering some scarves and have ordered a variety of these from China.   They are very cheap.  These five only cost $6 AU and that included the postage.  But I did order white and got black.

A now I find they are mainly synthetic not a natural fibre.  Oh well you get what you pay for.

Another package has arrived and these were a little more expensive at  5 for $15AU.  They come in a big range of colours, most of which don't suit my purpose but they are correctly labeled being cotton and linen fibre content.

They are light and quite large.  These look a lot more promising.

I am still waiting on the silk/cotton ones, we will see.

I have noticed that not everyone realises that "silk" is a real thing... Good luck!

Suspected when I saw the price that these were too cheap to be the real thing.


Life is full of unexpected surprises!
