Usually Cotton, though Bamboo may turn out to be even better. Small diameter strings like garden twine (hardware stores) or Meat-tying (cooking stores) string can be braided into one of the popular strings. I Used cotton carpet edging in my first wave of wands. I have found it difficult to acquire and so, I am thinking about T-Shirt material at the moment.

hey Tezza, i too am searching for a better material for wand strings. keep me posted if you encounter a successful find and i will do the same with you. so far the best has been a small 1/4 inch cotton rope commonly labeled "clothes line cord". the bubbler on stinson beach seems to have webbing for strings. anyhoo, happy hunting and keep in touch....L

Mop Heads (disassembled) and horizontal strips cut from t-shirts without seams and then stretched somewhat are current favorites of mine.
