Natural Fillis Jute Garden Twine 2PLY : 60M spool        British Brand: Nutscene, Scotland.

The classic Natural 'Fillis' Garden Twine refers to its natural non-dyed shade. The natural colour and silky sheen of Jute fibre gave rise to it becoming known as 'the golden fibre.'

Nutscene Fillis was patented by Nutscene in 1926. This is soft and pliable and a stronger 3ply natural jute twine (3 strands, 2.5mm thick). Made from sustainably sourced raw material. 

It was created for gardeners to tie in plant stems and specifically for the colour to blend into the plant material - designed to be unseen or "not seen" hence the brandname "Nutscene."

As the plant grows and eventually when the twine tie is no longer useful, it can be safely home composted. 

The spool is conveniently sized with a simple recycled paper band (leave this on) and has no plastic film - it is plastic free. Twine is drawn from the centre, enabling an easy supply of twine which is tangle free and won't unravel. 

Gardening aside, it is also great for festive gift wrapping and crafts. Natural twine looks lovely against brown or coloured kraft paper. If you don't need 60M, we also sell mini 13M spools of Natural here.

About the Sustainability of Jute

Jute is the plant fibre used to make burlap or hessian cloth. The primary source of the fibre is from the Jute plants Corchorus olitorius aka Tossa Jute and Corchorus capsularis aka White JuteThe jute fibre is extracted from the stem and the outer skin of the jute plant. 

Jute is one of the most affordable natural fibres and almost equals cotton in its variety of uses. India and Bangladesh are the main world producers of the raw fibre. 

Unlike conventionally grown cotton, Jute is an environmentally beneficial annual crop. It is relatively easy to grow being rain fed and fast growing (requiring no pesticides) which matures in about 120 days. It will grow on wastelands and improves the condition of the soil for future crops whilst greatly reducing CO2 levels. 

Jute yarn is spun from raw jute fibre to form a strong thread or yarn; two or more strands of jute yarn are then twisted to form twine (twisted yarns).

About the Brand: 'Nutscene' 

Nutscene have been crafting spools of natural jute twines in Scotland (Dundee area) since 1922 and still use the same machinery to wind the yarn. 

The company created their first product as a green garden twine that blended into foliage and was therefore "not seen" hence the brand name "Nutscene" was inspired! 

Nutscene still produces its own range of high quality garden and craft twines, ethically sourced materials from sustainable crops and employing local people. Nutscene are now world renowned producers of garden jute and twine.
