Questions & Answers

  • I wrap jute around wooden blocks for a craft project, but the jute loosens up after a day or two. Is there a way to stop this from happening, or am I pulling the jute too tight when wrapping? Could this be causing it to loosen up?

    An occasional touch of glue with glue gun when wrapping the blocks should keep the jute from unwrapping.
