Posted:If you're using woven cloth, the thinner/stretchier your material, the more transparent it will be. Of course, the thinner it is, the more susceptible it is to tearing, especially if your heads are weighty. You could also use a sheet of tough transparent plastic like vinyl. This will eliminate stretch, which I find distracting in poi, but other than that probably won't have any great characteristics for smooth spinning. Or you could use a net, which for most purposes behaves like a sock (though without the drag from air resistance it moves more quickly) and is more or less transparent.

Posted:there is something out there, but its by another manufacturer, so I don't feel right in promoting that here. If you are in desperate need, pm me and I'll send you that info.

Stockings aren't too bad, but they take a good bit of conditioning and pre-stretching to prevent it from being too bouncy. I have a lovely pair of black/blue striped stocking poi which I adore.
