This wood filled (woodfill) PLA prints wonderfully. Like all wood filaments it does produce a bit of stringing. However the stringing comes off easy but some can be left on if you want it to look like some twigs or roots. Excellent light wood color for a baby Groot model.

Hatchbox filament is very easy to print and the layers come out smooth. It is a well trusted affordable filament. Hatchbox continues to have a labelling issue where several shades will all be called green or blue sometimes with no clarification. Be careful when buying Hatchbox for this reason. Hatchbox comes on a plastic roll in 1KG sizes.
