New Rosin Line from Leatherwood: Eco Rosin
I got an email from Leatherwood about their new line of Eco Rosins. I'll have to give them a try, but I just ordered a Crisp from their regular line.
The new line is about half of the cost of their regular offerings, and eschews the deerskin and wood casings for a simpler approach.
I receives that email as well. I love the concept but seeing as I have 2 cakes of their regular rosin I probably won’t be purchasing the new one. Looking forward to hearing reviews for it though!
I am also on their spam list. I must say, if the actual rosin is any good at all, it will be worth more than the regular line. I just don't get the packaging for that stuff-- the deerskin wrappings are a complete nuisance.
It's astounding the lengths that rosin manufacturers have to go in order to differentiate their products.
Soooo ordinary premium rosin, minus the premium frills. So just ordinary rosin.
I am happy to hear this. We have never tried their products because our family is more or less Hindu and deerskin is just not OK for us. It's good to see them going in this direction. Definitely going to try it now!
So, Cotton, How many of the Leatherwood rosins have YOU tried?
If you weren't aware, last fall (possibly before), Leatherwood introduced little drawstring bags instead of leather wraps.
Leatherwood are Australian.
I don't care much for the vegan aspect of the rosin, I'm not planning on eating it.
Hmmm... is the regular rosin line made from bacon?
I personally find all eco-friendly marketing a gimmick to sell to those who care for these things. It will inevitably work for some of you (I have no problem with that at all), and I do believe in conservancy and climate change. But the product should be better than the gimmick-which may be the case to be fair, but something I am not willing to try *due* to the gimmick in the first place.
I've always been worried about not knowing what is in the rosin since you might inhale some of the dust.
