this is where EVERYONE, cabelas, avery, hobby lobby etc gets their Rafia... you have to buy in bulk. 25lb min. 2lb hanks, can mix and match colors. $4.80/hank pre dyed. I was quoted $150/25bs with shipping. get a buddy and split it up, will be way cheaper than a retailers charging you retail. For instance Cabelas "praire grass" $19.99/2lbs!!!! AND THAT IS ON SALE!
jstern 26lbs $150
Cabelas $199.99 plus shipping and that is a sale price normally $299.99. this is the 5lbs hank pricing not the 2lb. 2lb is $259 on sale and $389.87 normally for like quantity.
So if you buy cabelas in the 5lbs hanks it comes close but you don't get to select which colors you actually want and it will cost you almost $80 more for shipping
for reference 25lbs will completely smother an 18ft boat blind.
