- About Twool
Award Winning Twine made from Dartmoor Wool
Super sustainable twool twine is the only home grown British garden twine there is. Made in Devon from the wool of the rare breed Whiteface Dartmoor sheep twool twine is 100% British wool and is a versatile strong, durable and supple biodegradeable alternative to imported jute twine.
Inspired by exquisite moorland colours the range of twine colours complement flowers and plants beautifully making twool perfect for traditional garden use floristry and crafts.
“Our hope is that twool will be a modern day thread linking sheep and wool in a commercial marketplace and be a potential life-line for this rare breed sheep.”
As far as I'm concerned, these are the perfect way to start growing veg. The toms are really tasty, and the twool helps keep everything growing in the right direction!
