Posted:Is there anywhere in uk (or even better Leeds) where you can buy handmade sock poi?

I used someones that they made and they were perfect. My textiles skills are pretty dire to say the least but id love some no stretchy, good quality striped socks.

Posted:All socks are stretchy I'm afraid.

Only after extensive spinning do they lose their stretch, or even appear to lose it.

The reason they're not sold anywhere is because, it's a pair of socks, innit. whack 125 - 250 grams of any sort of weight in each one (ie lentils, Rice, juggling balls, whatever you can find), tie a knot in the open end, and Voila!! Sock poi!

No textiles skills needed.

Who'd've thunk it?

UNLESS you mean Cone Poi. In which case, i have a really nice set made by a friend of mine who sells them. I too can not sew, or at least, lack the patience to do so.

Or you could even get some body to Knit you some poi. actually, that's a good Idea.
