Skittles – 12cm long and 7cm diameter numbered 1 to 20
These skittles are made from UK softwood. Each skittle is 12cm long.
The logs are made from softwood such as Scots Pine and Larch and are cut from unprocessed (no chemicals or paints) wood.
We are passionate about UK grown wood supporting the future of our woodlands and providing natural alternatives to plastic play and learning resources. Natural wood is a fascinating material unlike a sterile plastic item. Wood changes, its bark comes away, there will be knots and cracks which will expand and contract as the wood changes over time. Further cracks will open up, particularly if left in direct sunlight or during a period of warm, dry weather. This all is amazing and it stimulates questions and helps connect us to the natural world.

The product has not been treated with a preservative although wood contains a natural preservative called tannin, which aids its longevity. Tannin is soluble and can leach out of wood when it gets wet. Once the water evapors, it will leave tannin sediment behind, causing staining. We recommend that you do not store your wood on a porous surface as the surface may discolour.
