Notes to answerer
Asker: I agree with Claire Restivo on this one - from the link it would appear that tripolina is what this particular fringing is made from, not the fringe in itself. No help from client either (don't you love them when feedback = zero?) so I'm forced to close this kudoz unanswered. Thanks for everyone's time and patience tho! SUE
