Description from Kaufmann Mercantile
500 feet of soft, oil-treated jute twine in a tangle-free tin can. For garden and other uses. High tensile strength, but also biodegradable and compostable. Made in Great Britain since 1922.
While intended as a garden string, Nutscene twine is broadly useful. Treated with oils, Nutscences softness makes it easy to tie and suitable for a delicate springtime frond. It is strong enough to lash things together and, in a pinch, will work as a makeshift load-bearing clothesline.
As a natural fiber, jute is biodegradable and compostable. A length of jute twine binding the base of a new shrub will decompose into the soil. Spun jute does not stretch, helping to keep a tight hold. Its high tensile strength strong enough to be made into shipping rope means it can be trusted to resist snapping.
