I love a little bit of craft so to be chosen to review these items was a lovely surprise. They came through the post quickly and I was pleased with the quantity included, so much twine and ribbon, so many things I could make or do with it all!
These ribbons and twines are all made by James Lever and are part of their Everlasto brand. They have been making ropes and twines since 1856, so really have a wealth of experience behind them. They are made in UK and are one of the largest rope and twine manufactures in the UK.
The Luxury Twine selection box comes with some gorgeous colours, daffodil yellow, oxford blue, rose pink, emerald green and beefeater red – to give them all their proper titles. They come packed beautifully and would make a lovely gift as the box has a lovely gift able luxury appearance and feel to it. Inside are a beautiful selection of colours that all compliment each other perfectly. Each twine is 50 meters in length and made from 100% natural cotton, they have a really soft feel and are beautiful quality.
They are perfect for crafts of all sorts, card making, scrapbooking, wrapping gifts, macrame and any thing else you can think of.
The decorative tying ribbon comes in a pack of 10, these are a random selection of colours, so you will get a nice surprise when they arrive. These are not gift boxed but still a very impressive selection and would make a lovely gift, either on their own or with the Luxury Twine Box. They come wrapped in cellophane and each of the ten spools is an impressive 100 meters in length, giving you a huge amount of ribbon for your money. These are a viscose ribbon, they are a soft and silky woven ribbon with a lovely sheen, making them all look like a shiny gem. They are great for crafts, I used 2 of mine to make a macrame rainbow and they look beautiful together and worked perfectly, they went a long way too with plenty left for lots more.
I would also use them for other crafts, card making, gift tags, present wrapping and anything else that calls for some beautiful ribbons.
With the selection I got, most were dark colours so do be prepared to have any colours you could think of in your selection.
Both of these packs would be a lovely gift, on their own or together for a Mum, Nanny, Gran or Grandma that loves to craft for Mothers Day, a birthday or just because you think they deserve a treat. Or if you love to craft, buying them for your self and gifting the crafted item for Mothers Day I’m sure would make your loved ones day.
These are great value for money and really lovely quality, you get a good length of twine and ribbon and a great selection and they will keep you or your recipient busy crafting for a long time.
