Synthetic Hemp Rope

Synthetic Hemp rope is one of our most popular ropes - it looks like natural hemp but is actually made from spun polypropylene.

It is often used in gardens for decking, rails etc - it looks great, it's UV resistant and highly durable, it won't swell or shrink when wet, it floats on water and it's easier on the skin than natural hemp.

There’s more information to help you choose at the bottom of this page.

    Synthetic Hemp - the perfect garden rope

    Synthetic Hemp rope is ideal outdoors, ideal for decking and handrails, on ships and boats, in construction and in children’s play areas - such as rope swings, ladders and climbing ropes. We have some great photos showing how Synthetic Hemp can be used.

    The surface is soft to touch but easy to grip, and it's weatherproof so can be left out all year round.

    If you are passing rope through posts, for example on decking or as garden rails,  please wait for the rope to arrive before drilling holes. The holes will need to be larger than the rope diameter - we advise drilling a test hole on some spare timber so you can match the size with the rope you have in your hand. There is more information on measuring properly here.

    Watch our video for guidance and top tips.
