Twool – rare breeds have their uses
New product ideas from the producers of Twool – the twine made from the wool of rare breed sheep has been interesting visitors to the show.
The product, using the wool of the white faced Dartmoor sheep, is far stronger than traditional twine and provides an income for those looking to keep this traditional variety from extinction.
New for this show are the ‘Twool essential’ as smaller amount of Twool wound onto a pocket sized card, with its own handy cutter ( itself made from a metal waste product). The team are also introducing a new concept the ‘Prop it and Crop it’; a special pack containing a heritage pea or bean variety and a colour coordinated pack of Twool from heritage sheep, enough to provide the support and crop the unusual variety. The new pack could prove to be an unusual gift idea, helping to keep traditional varieties alive.
Twool can be found represented on the Dalefoot Composts stand 20G34.
