BEST BUY

JUTE TWINE

Advert

Each spool provides 60m (197ft) of 3-ply twine about 3mm thick. The spools are available in 17 different colours.

KG VERDICT

These spools of twine are 100% Tossa jute plant fibre, so have excellent sustainability credentials and the twine is biodegradable. We liked the fact that there was plenty of length on each spool and the range of attractive colours. The twine itself is soft and strong and good for a range of garden tasks that require string.

An unusual and attractive dispenser. We liked its novel design and the fact that it comes with scissors, so everything you need in one place. The ball of twine offers plenty of length and will last a while. Would make an excellent gift for the gardener in your life.

TOP PICK

KG VERDICT
This is very good value for money and can be used for lots of different purposes, whether tying in stems or binding canes together for frames. Very good for garden lines as it can be left out in all weathers and won’t rot. Ties can be used again and again. Other types of twine such as jute are also available from this company.
