NUTSCENE® SCOTLAND | Tins o Twine - Lilac
Cultivated in India and Bangladesh in the eastern Empire, raw jute was shipped to the Scottish coast where, a century and a half ago in Dundee, Scotland the fibers were spun into coarse thread and used for all manner of goods from rope and carpets, to packing cloth and parachutes.
While many of the traditional uses for jute have since been replaced by synthetic fibers, the plant’s properties are so befitting of its role in the garden that jute twine has maintained its following into this century. It is the twine the Queen of England uses, and the one eager gardeners line up for at the Chelsea gardening expo.
Although originally intended as a garden string, Nutscene twine is broadly useful. Treated with oils, Nutscence’s softness makes it easy to tie and suitable for a delicate springtime frond. It is strong enough to lash things together.
A natural fibre, jute is biodegradable and will compost down.
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.

Contains your selected spool of 3 ply thickness jute twine - approximately 150 m per spool.
The design of the 'Tin of Twine' label comes from the original Nutscene archive circa 1940. Nutscene ® have been producing and manufacturing jute twine in the Dundee area since 1922.
