Got some pictures today. Idk what degradable plastic should look and feel like, but this stuff still looks and feels like normal plastic to me.
Waiting for the dead of winter before I start peeling it all up to throw out.

Updating again on the plastic straw mess.
I can't even remove it without running grass and some spots are very stuck. 😑
It's definitely some strong arse plastic! Not sun degrading. 😭

Cross fleeces? Are you listing fleeces on the fb groups?
Searched FB to find them. Haven't been trying hard to sell them, I know one sold, maybe two. I'll have to check which.

Have a ton of yard left, too. Don't wear wool, so...oops.

Updating.
Black one and Corriedale is still here.
And one white, but I have to weigh it to figure which one it is.

That's awful that it didn't degrade. You are right, it looks like brand new.... I'd write them and tell them how unhappy you are and that you intend to make sure people know it does not break down.

It’s weird…I had some netting like that and it decomposed in no time - as long as it wasn’t shaded or touching anything damp. Perhaps try putting it off the ground in sun and see if that makes a difference?

It rips the grass/dirt up with it. Only the stuff already up in the air I'll be able to cut out. :(
