Love this! This is Hand-tied twisted ramie made from the stalk of the ramie plant. The ends are twisted and connected by hand. Extremely labor intensive and is made in a small village in China. The vendor that makes it available is habu textiles in New York City. I called the store to get a feel for the pricing. The item comes only in 20.oz skeins which will cost $112.00. Ahhhh the price of love is high, but maybe in the future when I get better at what I'm doing, I just might go for it.
