So, It’s been awhile. Anyone remember me?
Anyhow, I've been making yoyo string for about 2 years now. I just started to experiment with rayon today, these strings are somewhat rough. I hoped that the nylon, which is super soft, would balance it out. It helped, but the obvious roughness of the Rayon is still apparent. I'm now experimenting for a fix for this problem, because I absolutely love rayon's sheen. EDIT: Actually, the I tried 2:5 rayon:nylon and the strings are about as rough as polyester kitty strings, and three times better with slacks and whips. So much better than 3:4. I also have several different formats, my best are two polyester types and one nylon type. I'm tempted to see what people think of the string by sending it to testers, but for now, I want to see what you all think of the colors. I call the string "Heartstrings".
These are 7 strands each, 3:4 Rayon:Nylon. I only have dark blue and red for rayon, and I have red, light blue, green, yellow, and orange nylon thread. I'm stuck with these colors, until mid April, which is when thread is 50% off in Joann's. Can anyone tell me of some color mixes that would look good? The dark blue is just a hindrance, I would like to focus on the red. Preferably 2 color ideas, but I'm willing to accept 3-color ideas as well.
TL;DR: What do you think of the string, and do you have any ideas with my limited thread colors?
