I have 3 different brands of twine in my craft arsenal right now, so I though it would be a good time to write a product review. This started because of a sale at The Twinery, a 3 color sample pack for $5
Okay, I know that twine has been popular in papercrafting for over a year now. But to be honest I really hadn't gotten into it that much. Until I discovered The Twinery that is! I didn't see the big deal, but then I checked out a couple of The Twinery's blog hops and I thought, hey there may be something here. But I had no idea that there is a huge quality difference in twine! Let me show you what I mean.
This is a comparison of 3 different twine products. The red twine ( the far right) I got from a friend, I'm not sure what brand it is. But as you can see it's really thin, and it's very loosely spun so it comes apart. The orange twine is from Divine Twine. I bought it at a local craft store. It's better than the red, thicker and more tightly spun so that it stays together. And I do think this is pretty good twine. I used it for a few cards in the last couple of months. The Green is from the sample pack above from The Twinery. It's thicker, more tightly spun, and has way more color in it that the other two. I was really impressed.
This is a close up of the twine from the card on my last post:
And their customer service is great! I had a small snafu with my order, but they were very nice to me and got everything straightened out right away. I now own these three sample sets!
