basket making materials by meuharris
Can anyone tell me the requirements for a suitable basket making material? I understand willow is very common but can I use the twigs from other trees as well? What about holly? Dog wood? Is pussy willow also acceptable?

I'd like a rec for an online yarn source. by Kalmia
