If you can use some of this, I can supply it for free (apart from p&p) as I know someone whose factory throws it away (5000 metres today!). It is such a waste. I am in Derbyshire, so if anyone wants any and could collect, let me know.

The cord is like the stuff you get on shorts/trousers and the webbing comes in various thicknesses and colours.

PS it's not much good outside as most of it is for clothing/back packs, etc. Tried to make a fence of it one year - sagged quickly. However, there MUST be SOME uses for it! It's like lunge line (if you know your horses) or like the straps on a child's buggy.

It could be weaved to make table mats or to re-fabric dining and deck chairs. Or how about making shopping bags out of it.
I would love some but alack and alas live too far away to collect.
