Only two types to use sisal or polypropylene(plastic) and remember to get the right thickness.

Our old New Holland won't cut polyprop (pink) so it's sisal or bust.  We prefer sisal anyway as it rots down in a year or so if it accidentally gets lost in the grass, whereas polyprop goes on for several years before it photodegrades, but I don't know if it ever disappears completely.
 
Isn't baler twine of whatever type expensive  :o
