With many thanks to Elizabeth for supplying the pictures and below is a copy of the email she sent us after finishing the project;
Some months ago you helped me with a project.
I wanted to bind rope around the metal handrail on a spiral staircase and came to you for advice and supply of a suitable rope.
The advice I was given and the soft handling yacht rope I bought from you proved to be excellent and I would like to thank you for your help.
As you expected the job of winding the rope round was challenging and took some patience but was well worth the effort.
It has made a massive difference to the stairs in appearance and comfort to the hand, I attach before and after photos for you to see.
With Thanks and Best Regards
