Hi there!

I would like to know which braiding technique is originally used for those woollen arabian halters. Can anyone help me, please?

Thanks and cheers,
Dagmar

It seems to me that it is a type of Macrame that is used in those halters. I've looked at several. The ones I saw were thick but basically flat and looked like a number of strands with beads/shells braided in with the strands. Not really hard, I would think, for someone who is used to fibre arts.Tthe ones I saw were definitely made of wool and not a synthetic. I have a book on Macrame somewhere that shows all the different braiding methods. I am pretty sure that one of those techniques could be adapted to make these halters.The big thing, I would think, would be finding out where to get the hardware, such as the nose pieces that are used. I've been thinking for a while that I would like to make one biggrin.gif
