    worsted twill tape?

    Does anyone have a retail source for 1.5" worsted twill tape? I'm looking to make a few sets of flashes in the Seaforths Highlanders style for the band and have only been able to find these cats so far: http://www.woodedhamlet.com/index.html
    their twill tape looks good, but isn't available in my preferred color. I'll dye it if I have to but would rather not if possible.
    Any suggestions?

    Never mind. I see that you have already checked with my preferred source.

    All the "Big names" in the 18th Century world WBD, B&T, and even Wooded Hamlet/Needle and Thread all order their twill tape from one source.

    There is so much more out there than the limited high volume tapes that the dealers sell here. I get it they might only sell a few yards of 44mm Scarlet tape a year, so why stock it, but for far too long I thought such tape was not even being produced! Now you know :-)

    Please buy from your local shop when you can, but know there is the Big twill tape store in the UK that can really square you away
