Stripple cordage…

Chunky and fine cordage made from the stripple collected from PH Coates in Somerset on Monday.

Stripple is the bark stripped from boiled brown willow to make buff. It smells amazing and is very strong. I have roughly 8 metres of the chunky cord, and am hoping to coil this into a simple basket and then use the finer cordage for handles.
