This is the burlap string. I can best describe it as a cross between jute, linen thread, and hemp. It's softer than jute, but not stiff like hemp, and much finer, more like SU's linen thread. These are great colors. In their listings, May Arts also listed white, gold, and silver. The gold and silver are exactly like SU's gold and silver cord. The white is exactly the same as the gold and silver, except it's an irridescent white. This stuff is great! In this share, you get 10 yards of the colors, 15 yards of white, gold, and silver for $12.
