Natural Jute Twine

Item # : 1-CC-121006
Regular price $7.00


Like its much larger oakum cousin, jute twine in this form can be used for caulking small cracks and joints in wood, which can be faster than breaking apart the larger oakum for the same purpose.

Our natural, jute twine is able to readily absorb preservation materials such as linseed oil and/or pine tar. This provides a very effective seal against water ingress and remains flexible even in harsh marine conditions.

While it is considered an untreated material, a small amount of hemp oil is used in the manufacturing process to minimized shedding and dust. As a natural fibre, it is fully biodegradable.

Jute, when used as a twine, has a medium tensile strength and is very resistant to sunlight, making it great for gardening, bundling, crafts, and decoration.
