Hemp is an extremely strong and durable natural fibre which holds knots securely. It won’t slip like nylon rope or stretch like cotton.
This hemp rope is suitable for most limb-bondage and is great for Japanese-style bondage.
Wrapping ropes repeatedly around the body/limb distributes the pressure across a larger area, thereby reducing the risk of injury to veins or nerves.
Hemp rope has a naturally stiff and rough texture which becomes more supple when treated and with every use.
It also has a distinctive smell. Do not wash hemp rope frequently. For cleaning tips, see our section on Cleaning your Gear.
