Buying cotton

Cottoning is critical to the hurdy-gurdy, but where can you buy the right cotton for your instrument?  Normal cotton wool used for removing make-up is not appropriate.

A good UK supplier of suitable cotton is Texere Yarns.  They ship worldwide and a large 100g bag of cotton is only £3.90 (as of 4 April 2012).  You can order online from their website here.
