Parcel string / Mod 70s carpet warp in earthy twists and deep poison green / vintage gift tie ribbon cut to spec




It’s funny how basic string marketed/sold for multiple purposes, all looks and works well for so many other purposes… we love this new old stock carpet yarn for securing products for shipping and gift giving… choosing this post-consumer-sourced product (instead of buying brand new twine) means avoiding the creation of manufacturing demand and related emissions.

When you purchase this item, you’ll receive five yards in the color of your choice. We will package it in 100% secondhand-sourced shipping materials and send it to you via ground shipping. If you live more than 250 miles from Minneapolis, this means you’ll likely pay more for shipping than the product (unless you make it an add-on to something paper-based that we can ship via media mail).

For more than one color, please choose ‘multiple colors’ option and indicate your color preferences, if you have them, in a message at time of order. Otherwise, we will select and send a combination of 3-4 colors totaling the yardage you select. Thanks!

Makes a great gift wrap accompaniment to our (sewing) pattern tissue paper packs!

Secondhand goods are embodied energy: choosing to purchase secondhand items instead of new extends the useful life of existing things and avoids the new manufacturing emissions that amplify climate change.

Choosing to be patient is good for our future. We’ll do our best to be good to you with this order. <3 Thanks for supporting our work!
