Hi, does anyone have any suggestions for suppliers/stores that sell wool binding - that can be used as edge trim for cape, sweater knit? The only source I've found to date is Tessuti Fabrics in Australia selling the Mokuba wool binding...suggestions, ideas? Thanks in advance!

Wm Booth Draper has wool tapes:

...But is there any reason you can't make your own?

Oh, yes, yes they do. You may be cursing me later! LOL

I really love their linen tapes. They have so many applications in the period costuming that I do--binding smock necklines, waistbands for aprons and pockets, ties for caps... really great stuff. I need to place a big order for more of them here pretty soon.
