Synthetic baling twine tied around bales of hay.

Baling twine or baler twine is a small diameter sisal or synthetic twine used to bind a quantity of fibrous material (notably hay or straw) into a more compact and easily stacked form. Tensile strengths of single-ply baling twine range from 95 psi (0.66 MPa) to 325 psi (2.24 MPa).[1][2]

Traditional sisal baler twine is naturally biodegradable, and modern synthetic polypropylene twines are also designed to be.
