Finding The Right Twine For The Job

Considering it’s just a few pieces of yarn woven together, you might think it’s strange we dedicate an entire section of our website to twine.

But the truth is…

Not only is twine extremely useful in a huge variety of ways, there are more types of twine than you might think.

Here at Renco Nets we supply a large selection of different twines that are available in different thicknesses, different materials and different colours.

It might be you’re looking to repair fishing nets, fix play nets, attach skip covers, wrap hay bales or tie plants…

Whatever you need twine for – we’re the folks to talk to.

The question is: what kind of twine do you actually need?

Well, let’s look at the main types we offer…

The Right Twine Material

First off, it’s good to figure out which material you need.

The two main options are nylon or polyethylene.

Both materials are stronger than natural fibres and both are more resistant to UV, general wear and rot.

Nylon is a little more flexible than polyethylene, so it’s better for situations where you need a little more ‘give’ in your twine.

But nylon is a little more susceptible to extreme heat and can wear faster if exposed to water for too long.

So, if you’re looking for a twine to use for jobs in a marine-based setting, a polyethylene twine might be more suitable.

The Right Twine Thickness

Depending on the job, you might be in need of a thicker or finer twine.

It’s not a problem.

We supply a variety of diameters, from 0.75mm Nylon Twine to much thicker 6mm Polyethylene Twine.

We even have 8mm Braided Nylon available for particularly heavy-duty jobs.

And of course, we have plenty of options in between, including 1.3mm Cross Braided Nylon Twine, 2mm Braided Nylon Twine and 4mm Braided Polyethylene Twine.

If you’re not sure which twine would be most suitable for a specific job, you can always pick up the phone and gives us a call or fire a quick email to us here in the office.

Indeed, if you’ve got any questions about the different types of twine we provide here at Renco Nets, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The Right Twine Colour

Finally, you might want to choose a specific colour of twine.

For example, if you are looking to pick up some twine for use in the garden – or in an agricultural setting – it would make sense for it to be green so it blends in.

That said…

If you’re in a more industrial setting it might be you want the twine to stand out more so an orange or yellow option might be better.

The good news is:

We have a huge range of different colours available for many of the twines we supply, including orange, yellow and green.

When you select a particular twine on the website, you’ll see we note which colours are available and when you place an order, you just need to note down which colour you’d like.

So, when it comes to twine, we can help you make sure you’ve got the right material, the right thickness and the right colour.

If you have any questions about twine or you can’t find something you’re looking for on the website, feel free to get in touch.

As always, you can email us at or call us direct on 01469 575804 and we’ll be happy to help.
