Summary:

It also makes things more likely to be itchy, sneezy, etc. Update (2018). Hemp never stood a chance, because jute got to me first – as far as rope goes, it’s my one true love. And tossa especially, because it’s highly durable with low maintenance. Approximately 100 metres left of my Precious. Again, when washed, boiled etc it tends to degrade. “Natural Fiber” Ropes:. Hemp, Jute, Sisal, Cotton, Coconut. That said, for restraint, this will generally get the job done. The knots used in the single column and two column ties which I posted about earlier will do a solid job of holding things in place, but feel free to use anything that isn’t a slip knot.

Let’s face it, sometimes the Internet is just more convenient. Next we have a polypropylene webbing. It’s a really significant factor. And this is why I strongly advise that you DO NOT buy your rope from Peaches and Cream or any other sex shop. With the core removed, a single hank of it weighs almost nothing. You can carry a lot of it around with you.

Nylon, MFP (multi-fiber propylene), “Mixed Fiber” Rope, Poly-pro, Parachute cord. Pro: Better “tooth”, so it grabs better and takes fewer knots to hold securely. What type of rope should I use? When you are just starting off, just go with cheap solid-core braided cotton. I found it at a Bunnings Warehouse. It wouldn’t ordinarily have gotten my attention, because it looks fairly obviously too stiff for use as bondage rope. Your ties may not stay in exactly the same place as you put them, riding up or down, etc. It’s not particularly aesthetic.

“Synthetic Fiber” Ropes:. Nylon, MFP (multi-fiber propylene), “Mixed Fiber” Rope, Poly-pro, Parachute cord. That said, for restraint, this will generally get the job done. The knots used in the single column and two column ties which I posted about earlier will do a solid job of holding things in place, but feel free to use anything that isn’t a slip knot. However, once I removed the core, that changed things considerably (If you want to know how to remove the core, send me a message or something and I’ll update). Pros.

Pros:. Both breaking strain and rating provided. Which is basically incredibly soft and smooth, but with enough solidity and weight to it to give it a real feeling of authority when you put it around someone’s wrists, legs, what have you. It feels basically like nylon rope, but is nowhere near as pricey. Has a really, really nice smell – sort of earthy and warm. Knots are not at all difficult to unpick; because of the compactness of that tight lay, it doesn’t tend to squish and become difficult. Not terribly pricey at Bunnings. Cons:. As I’ve only ever seen it in white, that means you should get a good result if you decide to go down that route. Research your dye carefully though.
