Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send clear, in-focus close-ups of the surface so I can see the knotting/material.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:
I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
