Braiding the Vidjor

Braiding the Vidjor
The vidjor really aren't "braids", they are more like yarn in that they are simply twisted out of a pile of loose sawgrass. The sawgrass blades have small hairs or serrations along their edges, which hook them to adjacent blades -- as one twists and pulls, the loose end of the yarn engages additional blades, resulting in a strand of any arbitrary length one desires.

The vidjor used on the roof acreage ranged from 4-8 feet and about 3-4 inches across.
