Flax Hemp Rope

Natural, strong rope sold by the metre, by the reel and by the discount bulk coil.

For indoors, outdoors, homes and businesses.

Flax Hemp rope is made from natural fibres so any fibres that are shed over the years will rot into the earth.

Some people choose Synthetic Hemp, which looks the same and is soft to handle, but is made from spun Polypropylene.

    We stock natural Hemp rope in a wide range of diameters, from 6mm-36mm. These have a minimum breaking load (not test certificated) ranging from 0.28 to 9.20 tonnes, and can be bought:

    What is flax hemp rope?

    Flax hemp rope is made from fibres extracted from the stems of the flax plant (Linum usitatissimum) – 100% natural and fully biodegradable. The fibres are spun to create tough multi-strand threads.

    Aside from being environmentally-friendly, natural hemp rope also boasts a number of other useful properties. For example, flax is recognised as one of the strongest natural fibres on the planet, and this superior strength is echoed in the final product. It also benefits from:

    • a soft, pleasant texture
    • the ability to float on water
    • resistance to heat
    • resistance to UV rays
    • durability
    • flexibility
    • good knot retention

    What can flax hemp rope be used for?

    One of the main advantages of hemp rope is its versatility.

    It used to be used on ships’ rigging. These days it is frequently chosen where frequent rope-handling is necessary (e.g. barrier ropes, stair bannister ropes, gymnasium climbing ropes, theatre scenery lifting and pulley ropes).

    And thanks to its nautical appearance and natural shade of brown, flax hemp rope can also be used for a variety of decorative domestic purposes, both inside and outside of the home.
