LOOK, look, look
We took a short trip to Marrakesh, skeins of wool dyed with natural colours hanging up in the souk.
I discovered a new yarn while I was there, cactus silk which is made from the Aloe Vera plant, what a useful plant it is. Its has a very lustrous finish and weaves up beautifully. Apparently Morocco is one of the few countries that produces it. Seems to me it ought to be more widely produced it doesn't seem to have any drawbacks, doesn't need fertilisers or pesticides and regrows really fast.
