Cotton Rope

cotton-ropeCotton rope is very soft to touch, lightweight and easy to handle.

It responds well to dye, and is widely used for decorative and handicraft applications.

Like other natural ropes, it absorbs water, is susceptible to rot and mould, and will increase in diameter when relaxed.

Other common uses include circus ropes, animal halters and toys for pets.

Key properties at a glance: 

  • Twisted 3-strand construction
  • Made from natural fibres
  • Responds very well to dye
  • Poor water and rot resistance
  • Store in a dry place
  • Good knot stability
