What is SieneTwine?

Seine twine is constructed similar to a rope.  It has a very tight twist and therefore very little stretch. The numbers on Seine twine indicate how it has been constructed. For example, the #12 Seine is made from 4 strands of size 12 thread twisted together (like a single twist yarn) and this 4/12 is played with another 4/12 (the 2).
