This is our custom made, and exclusive 1mm all natural European hemp twine spun onto plastic, disposable bobbins.
This is the perfect medium for all the twines we offer, and is the most used and utilized for tying salumi in industry. This particular make and size is very sturdy, and is used to tie larger format products generally stuffed into casings 3 in. or larger; but is not limited to that sizing. This is your string for tying any salami stuffed in our sewn casings, as well as large, whole muscle salumi stuffed in bungs such as Coppa, Bresaola, etc; but is also the perfect size to fit in our culatello tying needle.
This size is perfect for making the classic Culatello basket weave, as well as Fiocco. We also carry the 1Kg bulk spool for restaurants and manufacturers (as well as you dedicated salumi enthusiasts), as this is the most popular and best value.

Each Spoletta contains about 50g of hemp twine, which is equivalent to about 125-150 feet.
The BEST way to use the spool is to first soak it in water for about 2-3 minutes until the string is fully hydrated. This will allow for ease on your hands, as well as aiding in binding the string together so it does not come unwound as you try and tie. You also risk the twine getting tangled in the rest of spool, and to fix this you’ll have to cut the knot out. Soak it!
It is very IMPORTANT that you maintain a firm grip when using the hand spools, because if you do not the twine may come unwound. This will make it difficult to tie later, and the possibility of it tangling is greater. When you go to pull the string to add tension make sure you wrap it around your finger before pulling so tangling doesn’t happen.
