It was just a thin hemp twine that you might use for crafts or tying up plants or packages. You could use kitchen twine, laundry line or leftover yarn. It just needs to be able to wick the water from the basin to the soil.

Here is a bigger version we made for my basil. It worked great. I'm still using it today.
