Twisted

Soft, synthetic alternative to natural fibre rope.

A strong, weather & UV resistant rope that incorporates the superior properties of synthetic fibres with the classic look and feel of natural fibres.

Unlike natural fibres, the polypropylene fibres used in Hemptex are hypoallergenic, do not rot and do not absorb water, while the added UV stabiliser further prolongs the life of this rope – making it perfect for outdoor use.

Hemptex breaks in faster and has a softer handle than natural fibre alternatives.
