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.
Each piece of wood is in its natural form and often with bark on. Every piece has its own unique character with bends, knots, flaky bark, different colours and growth rings. A fascinating and absorbing material.
Natural wood will be affected by its environment. It is best stored in a cool, well-ventilated area protected from damp and heat, to prevent any mould growth and lessen cracking.
