Seasoned Straight Willow Sticks

It’s wet and windy outside so just the day to cut up a bundle of willow into lengths ready for crafts and the upcoming wreath making season.

The willow is grown on our farm, harvested by hand between November and February/March and then air dried under cover in our barn. We use a small bandsaw to cut up hand selected willow whips into either 60cm or 10cm sticks. The larger sticks are mainly used by schools for various crafts and the smaller ones used for log bundle picks for decorating Christmas wreaths.

10m Reel of natural hemp string

Hemp String back in stock

The popular small 10m reels of natural hemp string are back in stock. These are fantastic around the house and garden as well as for crafts.

We use it on our woodland burial wreaths to bind foliage to a twig base such that we comply with the requirement for everything being biodegradable. We also do bigger reels of jute twine which are more cost effective but are a bit cumbersome to hold whilst making wreaths.

As with everything, there is a small price increase but not as shocking as it might have been. They are now at £1.80 a reel.
