Chatham Hemp Rope

Starting at: £0.36

Natural Chatham Hemp Rope, cut to required length.

Did you know that Hemp ropes float? Used for generations as the rope of choice because it was stronger and more rot resistant and kinder on the hands than all other natural fibre ropes. They are suitable for all uses, practical & decorative, both indoor & out, handrails, rope swings etc. 

As a naturally occurring fibre, hemp has long been the primary material for ships’ rigging and other marine uses, and as hemp ropes float you can see why sailors adopted hemp with enthusiasm. Hemp rope has been used for many years due to its superior strength and resistance to rotting. Another significant benefit to hemp rope is that it is much easier on the hands than alternatives. It is also known as one of the most versatile ropes on the market. Hemp rope is suitable for varying practical and decorative as well as remaining functional in and outdoors. We offer a three-strand natural hemp rope woven by our partners in Europe, starting at 6mm and going all the way up to a hefty 36mm.
Hemp is widely recognised as one of the strongest natural fibres on the planet, frequently used on many sailing ships travelling from Europe to the new world America.
Hemp is the perfect choice where handling is to occur, and its soft finish makes it ideal for barrier ropes, stair banister ropes and gymnasium climbing ropes too. You’ll also find hemp rope used extensively in theatres for the lifting and suspension of scenery. While natural hemp rope may be more expensive than synthetic hemp rope, we keep our prices on hemp extremely affordable, compare us to the competition and we’re sure you’ll agree
