Darling Buds of Morocco

My sister sent me these Moroccan 'buds' from Marrakech. Double click on the photo to see just how beautiful they are. Each cluster is made up of lots of tiny buds wound from fine cotton thread. I have no idea whether they are hand or machine made but they are so tiny that it would surely be too hard to make them by hand. I am busy thinking of how I will incorporate them into my Sweet Mary handmades this spring.
