    As a Textile technologist in a former life ... Ramie is a great fibre ... gains strength when wet , but can be brittle dry ... If vapers want to have a go at this PLEASE make sure you are using 100% organic Ramie from a reputable source ... a lot of what is passed off as Ramie in the game is a ramie/rayon blend if spun or prepared for spinning... this is NOT good and is a semi-synthetic fibre yuck yuck melty yuck !

    you need to source 100% ramie tow ( tow is the industry name for carded fibre where the fibre has been prepared and run thru a combing/carding machine for further use )

    Ramie also comes as a cotton blend , but it will be chemically bleached ... so try to source it in its natural form or in 100% Ramie tow .

    Ramie - the natural fiber with strength for noble apparel

    Cool ... "Tops" is a coil of "tow" prepared to go onto a spinning frame , so hopefully should be the good stuff

    Just to be uber safe I would ask them to ensure its 100% ramie ... looks like it tho

    Having flashbacks to 20 years in textiles ..... helllllllp
