If like me you struggle to get enough scarves for your troops, you may be interested in something I got at lunch time.
 
My wife does a bit of needle craft / sewing type stuff and amongst her stuff was some ribbon. Turns out it is called bias binding. I had a look in my local Hobbycraft store at lunch time and found some ideal for making VAM scarves.
 
It is the same width as a proper scarf and is olive green. They describe it as 25mm but it is narrower as it is folded over at the edges. The cost was only £2.00 for enough to make at least 10 scarves.
 
There was a wide choice of colours that would be suitable for BoB and helicopter pilots and Afrika Korps etc too.

Yep I use that stuff for scarves, you can get it in various colours so you can also make Helicopter Pilot orange scarves.

Thats the stuff!

The only difference is that the green I got looks to be a different shade.
