This linen rope has been conditioned using dry finishing techniques to provide a extremely soft, supple rope that is also extremely durable.
A blend of hemp and premium grade flax this rope has been made specifically to Esinem's exacting standards for one purpose... to produce a rope ideal for shibari and kinbaku. We are delighted to include this in our catalogue of natural fibre ropes.
Linen is an exceptionally fine fibre from the Linum usitatissimum plant - which was once used as a currency. This rope is made from approximately 40 ultra-fine treads per ply giving the rope amazing consistency, high strength and also holds knots extremely well.
Constructed in the traditional 3 plait twist, this linen rope is an ideal choice for dying as the fibre absorbs the dye well.
Warning: most natural fibre ropes are not rated against loading strength and we always advise against making any assumptions about the breaking point of natural fibre ropes. You should always avoid putting anyone at risk and regularly check your ropes for wear.
* All natural fibre rope batches vary, we cannot guarantee any ropes purchesed at a later date will match 'exactly'.
- Not quite right Review by Bev
- The rope is slightly darker (in colour) and slightly stiffer than I was expecting. I do like the smell though. Hopefully it loosens up a little with use. (Posted on 1/2/13)
