Genuine natural-fibre hemp rope manufactured by world-renowned Langman Ropes in Holland.  Hemp rope was traditionally used on classic sailing boats however modern synthetic products, such as polyester, which can be made to look like hemp, are often preferred by today's mariners due to the strength and long-life of man-made fibres.

Natural hemp is still sought after by some nautical purists in the yachting industry for the rigging of classic ships.  It is also used by landscape architects, artists and those requiring a fully 100% natural product.

Hemp rope is often used for climbing ropes in gymnasiums, pull ropes, gymnastic swing ropes, bannister ropes, theatre ropes, skirting ropes & twines.  The larger diameters are also ideal for tug-o-war, as battling ropes and bootcamp/fitness training due to their weight.  Because of its natural look hemp is often used in interior design applications, particularly for nautical or beach-side themes.

Langman's hemp rope is of the highest quality and is shipped to Classic Boat Supplies in spools of 220 metres.  We sell hemp rope by the metre in diameters from 6mm through to 36mm.  This hemp rope is twisted from 3-strands, or 4-strands for the 36mm.

    Great from shop to delivery

    Posted by PETER CLEARY on 10th May 2018

    I used the 6mm and 12mm hemp rope to give a nautical theme to glass jars to be used as vases. A great natural product as nature intended and just what I needed. Classic Boat Supplies gives an excellent, professional service while Fastway couriers have super fast delivery. I will definitely be ordering from them again and will recommend them to others. Bewdy!

    Will see how it goes

    This is my first time to use Natural hemp rope so I can not say as feedback. However, I have been using marine grade synthetic rope for lacing drumheads and it has certain life span and also get powdery when exposed to UV.

    Natural products have sound textures and not cause effects to marine animals. I prefer to use old and ancient technologies.

    Wonderful natural fibre rope

    Posted by Rose McCathie on 18th May 2017

    This was the ideal rope for my intention to make a walking rope for a group of preschool children. A lovely smooth finish, perfect for young hands to hold.
    Prompt service and turn around from order to arrival at home.
    Thanks for a great online shopping experience.

    Exactly what I was looking for!

    Posted by Sarah Mostyn on 28th Jan 2017

    We recently purchased your natural hemp rope to be used for our Goat on a Rope handmade soaps. The rope feels great, is exactly what we needed for this purpose and complements the natural appearance of our soap products. The service from Classic Boat Supplies was excellent and extremely fast. Highly recommend & will shop with you again!

    Great rope

    Posted by Lara on 28th Dec 2016

    Great rope, doesn't twist up like some others do, feels good in the hands and slides through pulleys with ease. The guys have knowledge of their products, deliver great customer service and fast postage.

    First class product! Thanks for whipping both ends for me. Nice to grip so it is perfect for the job. Smells amazing too. Much better than cheaper natural fibres. Thanks!
