Natural vs. Synthetic Rope 

Pros & Cons Natural Rope Synthetic Hemp
Pros 

Biodegradable – leaves no unwanted footprint behind

Great looking, traditional rope

Natural resistance to UV degradation – great for sunnier climates

Natural looking but with benefits of synthetic properties

Is weather resistant

On average, will last longer outside than natural fibre

Holds knots well

Cons

Susceptible to water, rot and mildew

Will shrink when wet, and lengthen when dry, making it slightly trickier to install

Diameter may vary slightly from that stated

More susceptible to UV degradation and will eventually flake
