    I am receiving made in usa, mountainer socks and pullover ads. They are immensely expensive and bad designed. Who wears white sock on the mountain with red and blue stripes , may be 40 years ago but not now.

    Well , they advertise very strong wool on the pullover. Fire treated , not burned but surface and long fibers been destroyed and surface is like an glass.

    I thought that wool would be the best friend for fretless player. If your hands wet , you dont feel it.

    But lets not cover steel core with this , lets go to silk road and lets place silk core in to mold and fill it with polyester resin with hardener.

    Slow process but a single lathe drill can open 4 string mold in to teflon plastic plate and this can be filled with polyester and silk.

    Why polyester , nylgut lute strings are polyester.

    Than we cover the mold released string with wool thread and than fire threated.

    When after installing the string on the bass , we turn steel wire on the pickup side and glue with acrylic on to wool and polyester.

    I think I follow the process, but if you could make these, the steel wire part of the string might be hard to line up over the pickups. Or are you thinking it would run the whole length of the finished string?

    Side note: you sure come up with some interesting ideas... :D

    This should probably be moved to the strings pages
