Tinsel wool...

yep..that's right.. have you ever seen anything like it before
it's yarn with tinsel attached,
it's going to make very interesting knitting :)

 I picked up this tin box while out shopping,
I love it...love things like this,
the tyres could do with pumping up a bit though

I'm using it to store my silk ribbons for my embroidery.

Happy crafting
