Honestly, I like em all, but am a sucker for the way flat fringe moves. My top 5 in order:

1. Flat Fringe
2. Yarn
3. Chainette
4. Ribbon
5. Cloth

My daughter loves touching the flat fringe and chainette, so that's two votes here!

Because I have been making my sons outfits since he was 5 I prefer wide cotton strip. The process is so much faster than yarn. Besides my son likes the wide flat maeterial as well. Also in Oklahoma since it is so hot in the summer light weight it is not near as hot as all that yarn weighing him down. That is the choice for now, but it could change.

I use yarn accented with ribbon. I also like just ribbon, but prefer the fuller look of the yarn. Got to say I don't really like the other options, especially cloth. Don't mean to be hurtful to anyone, thats just what appeals to me.

No doubt all that yarn gets warm as heck...in my experience, from hot-to-wear to cold-to- wear:

Yarn
Flat Fringe
Chainette
Ribbon
Cloth

All depends on how thick you pile it up too - AND what kind of material you make the clothes out of. When I was a kid, I loved the shiny stuff - but it gets HOT fast.

My grown up choice is something breathable with shiny applique... although I'm starting to get caught up in ridiculous details like textural differences in textiles and how it feels to touch - or even how easy it is to sew!

The curse of being a part-time painter.

What is that stuff called that the women used to use to make rugs? Ya know that nylon stuff. Used to buy it at Walmart here in the yarn section, but they haven't had it in forever. Know what I mean? I would like to know what it is called. It's nylon.......used to use it to hook rugs long time ago....and if using yarn.....what kind of yarn?? There is so many different kinds. Some better than others.

The latch & hook stuff I know is called acrylic yarn... they have it at Joann's stateside and it is what comes with most latch & hook kits. I'm guessing it's as hot or hotter than wool yarn. Probably moves about the same too (although I bet you could seal the ends with a candle/heat for acrylics)

For yarn, I just use plain old Red Heart - you can get it at the Wall Mart there Sweets. You can use white glue to seal the ends of the yarn if you want, but I rarely do it - probably most useful on the legs down by the bells, it seems to fray down there the most.

Ahaw.

Will remember that acrylic yarn. I actually made a grass outfit with it before and its wonderful! I just can't get it around here no more:(. It sways and moves nicely. I will check the Michigan side for it tomorrow. or sometime soon. As for the yarn...I know there are better grades than others, just thought one might know..but its a question I can ask the ladies in the knitting dept. I guess. :|

Gaygit, I'll go look for some in a couple weeks, after my finals and get back to you. I might even be over that way around Xmas if I get a moose (drop some off for my daughter)... or may be able to arrange for my daughter to deliver it.

Just let me get these final papers done (remind me in about two weeks ;) )!

I like the look of the wide cut poly-fabric, I cut some recently out of ponte( double knit poly) and it was perfect for the outfit.

i definately like the ribbon or the cloth fringes the best. sometimes people go a little overboard on the yarn and it just kinda looks like a tumbleweed dancing. ^_^

+1 I am currently using all ribbon on this regalia. I miss the fullness of the yarn though so I am experimenting with more ribbon.

I prefer chainette and yarn. When I started Grass dancing I mainly saw: all chainette w/ pendant side drops, or all yarn. True there was sometimes a little ribbon added for accent. I still prefer chainette. It's lighter; I like how it moves; and It's less flashy (for the most part). I dance for me and for god, and don't compete. I'm not trying to stand out and get noticed. Besides; I feel that by haveing a less flashy outfit; it makes me focus on properly dancing. It make me dance the best that I can; because it doesn't cover my mistakes as easily.

Agreed, this is why I took all the flagging tape and top fringe off of my fancy feather outfit - it covered up way too much and I felt like I was getting lost in the mess.
