This was a great size jute twine in a great quantity. The cord is well wrapped and it spools off easy. I had planned on using it for my parrots (ie: making toys, etc) but it IS oiled jute twine which is unsafe for them as they use their mouths to climb. It was still not a loss as it can be used for many things around the house. I am planning on making a jute wrapped lamp and mirror for my guest room. It will be perfect for this purpose.
