    it may be new to you but ive been using it for close on 30 years. the twines go back a lot further some of these mills closed nearly that long ago and research shows the labels dating from 1920, the Barbour twine goes back years and is now labelled as Barbour Coates (nothing to do with waxed jackets) still higher standards than the far eastern imported twine texture like barbed wire in comparison Y.I.S Leeview

    Alan Clarke exchanged twines long before we actually got the Guild of Net Makers up and running, Bill Sneddon and Derek weldon admired it last year when they saw it and then this year Alan Salmon was more than interested. I had the twines with me at Weston Park and the most asked question was " Where do you get this from?" I cant divulge that for reason someone will be in there and buy the lot ,I did give some away to visiting net makers. As for not fancying the wax once again you have not seen this twine and give your opinion, its waxed for a reason to lubricate it when stitching, its not a hard wax obviously its actually shoe polish that is used on and thats very soft almost like butter.

    they hang well on the pins some bulkier than others, I have 6strand S twist. 6strand braided various waxed linens and some 10 strand all hold on a single knot

    Ive been enthusing over it for a long time and yes I do think its better imho, but when other renowned net makers have seen these nets they are very complimentary about the quality of the material and the nets made from it .Price wise you can get cheaper material for making nets but like most things you get what you pay for. the most frequently asked question i get asked do you have to look after it as you would hemp? simplest answer is Did you ever have a sole drop of a pair of Dr Martens? .
