Synthetic hemp rope

Synthetic hemp rope – one of our most popular products in 2023

And pretty much every other year too!

Synthetic Hemp. Synthetic Hemp Rope. Hempex Rope. Polyhemp Rope. Hardy Hemp. People may call it different things, but it’s the product that everyone appears to want.

As a leading online rope supplier, we have an unrivalled collection of synthetic hemp rope to choose from.

It certainly has a lot going for it. It’s a versatile choice – and whilst there are plenty of places where you could pick up a length of this popular product, if you’re going to buy hempex from anywhere, RopesDirect is the obvious choice.

Think we’re biased? Possibly, but there’s no denying that synthetic hemp flew off our warehouse shelves in 2023. That’s not a coincidence. Plus, our glowing product reviews speak for themselves.

So, what is it that sets us and our synthetic hemp apart from all those other suppliers?


6 reasons to buy synthetic hemp at RopesDirect


1. Hempex in every shape and size

It’s fair to say, our synthetic hemp range covers every base.

Looking to buy in bulk? We have large 220m coils measuring 6mm to 36mm, as well as 100m coils in three of our most popular diameters – 32mm, 36mm and 48mm. For big projects, reels are also available in various lengths  (40m, 50m, 70m, 100m and 220m) and sizes ranging from 4-28mm.

Just need enough for your DIY decking? Our synthetic hemp rope can also be bought by the metre (with a maximum continuous length of 220m), in a broad spectrum of diameters – from 4mm to 65mm!

With so many options to choose from, whatever your specific requirements and preferences, we’re confident we have the right hempex for you. Once you’ve selected the ideal rope, you can even choose from our selection of quality brass fittings – to help finish your project in style!

2. Fully stocked shelves of synthetic hemp

Fed up with seeing those two dreaded words? Sold out.

They’re not two words you’ll see often around here (if at all!).

As one of our best-selling products, we ensure we always have plenty of synthetic hemp in stock in our warehouse. Which means – no matter which size or length you require – if you’re ready to buy, you can.

Year-round, all products in our polyhemp collection are available for immediate purchase. Just pop them in your basket and checkout.



3. Top-tier hardy hempex

It doesn’t get any better than this.

There are several manufacturers of synthetic hemp rope, but we choose rope made from Hempex yarn because we think it’s the best. Simple as that. It certainly lives up to its name as being a ‘hardy’ option – ideal for prolonged outdoor use (even in the UK!).

It may have an authentic and attractive natural hemp appearance, but it offers all the benefits of a synthetic material. It’s weatherproof, UV resistant and doesn’t swell or shrink when wet. In fact, you could leave it outside for many years and it will still look as good and do the job just as well.

Yet despite its tough and durable nature, it’s also flexible, soft-to-touch and easy to handle.



4. Easy on the bank balance

Not just great quality, great value for money too.

RopesDirect is an exclusively online rope stockist. Which means, we’re able to save on overheads and can pass those savings on to you. Our premium synthetic hemp starts from just 30p per metre, with reels starting from just £24.84 and large 220m coils starting from just £59.40 (Jan 2024).

These are fantastic prices (even if we do say so ourselves); much less than you can expect to pay at a traditional chandlery. Coupled with our low-cost delivery options – for a comparable level of quality – you’re unlikely to find such affordable synthetic hemp rope anywhere else.
