Stumbled upon this video this morning. I found it interesting so thought I'd throw the link up here. Just in case you were curious about the process to make these wonderful strings....

That's fascinating. I always imagined mimmo standing behind a big 50 gallon stockpot stirring up a magical brew of string goop. I'm guessing that the "goop" is in the vessel in the beginning of the video and being forced out under pressure into the cooling bath?

HA! As long as it's being stirred with the top of a witch's broom.

As for the cooling bath...I think that's the idea. Sort of hard to tell. I wish that they would have gotten more of the beginning portion or explained it a little bit, but what are you gonna do? I probably just wasted two minutes of everyone's life that watched it, but I had no idea that there was this many moving parts involved.
