Baler Twine FAQ

What is baling twine?

Baling twine is a type of cord or string which is wrapped around farm material such as hay and then tied to make a “bale”.  

What diameter should I use?

3mm is very strong and is recommended for the largest bales. For smaller bales 1.5mm to 3mm twine is suitable 

Will the twine rot over time?

The twine on this page made from Polyethylene and Polypropylene will not rot when exposed to the outdoor environment

Do the strands untwist when it is cut?

No.  The twine has a braided construction not a twisted construction.  This means that when it is cut it won’t unravel unless someone intentionally pulls the threads apart with some force.  The twine is made from plastic so it is also possible to melt the end of the twine with a flame.

Will they hold a knot well?

Yes, all of the twines will hold a knot.  Sisal twine will hold a knot better than Polyethylene due to its texture.
