Hemp is one the strongest and most durable of all natural fibres, making this twine perfect for gift wrapping, gardening, cooking and craft.
We supply two x 50 metre / 54.68 yard balls of thick (4 ply) hemp twine in a reusable cotton drawstring bag, which is handprinted and sewn in a Fair Trade workshop.
This natural hemp twine is hand spun by Fair Trade artisans in a beautiful village in rural Bangladesh. These women have been spinning hemp by hand since 1982 and are supported by an NGO who ensures they are paid fair wages and have regular work.
The hemp for the twine is grown - without pesticides - in the artisans' local community. A truly sustainable and eco-friendly crop, hemp can produce 250% more fibre than cotton and 600% more fibre than flax using the same amount of land.
50 metres (54.68 yards) per ball.
