Dave V makes them... or used to.
You can also get different sets from Eric Evans.

I can also make them as does James Riser if DaveV won't.

Frank's are probably excellent just based on his pouch work.

DaveV - I have a set of his and they're terrific. I love them! I can't vouch for them enough!

DaveV made me a few sets last year and they are terrific! Last I heard from Dave, he wasn't making them anymore. You can't go wrong with Frank or James Riser.

It's not that I won't it's more like I can't. It's just that my supplier couldn't deliver quality raw materials anymore. I've thrown out more spools of bad lace than I can handle. It gets pretty expensive when I have to go through 3-4 rolls of the stuff to get enough to make a set. Colors were becoming inconsistent as well. I had to cancel a recent order when I couldn't scrape enough together to make even one set.

I'd probably have better luck if I used wet spagetti. Smile Hmmm... maybe I can use a meatball as a final load.

That's actually pretty sad news Dave. I have been desirous of a 1¼ set. Let me know when you might be up and running again. Please
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

I didn't have trouble with the materials. It was more of a time issue.
I might have solved that, however.
