Natural-fibre hempflax 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.
Langman Ropes of Holland have recreated a a rope with almost exactly the same feel as traditional Hemp using the flax plant. Hemp suitable for rope-making is virtually impossible to find these days, but this rope is virtually identical in look, performance and feel.
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.
Hempflax 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 hempflax is often used in interior design applications, particularly for nautical or beach-side themes.
Langman's hempflax rope is of the highest quality and is shipped to Classic Boat Supplies in spools of 220 metres. We sell this rope by the metre in diameters from 6mm through to 36mm. This hempflax rope is twisted from 3-strands, or 4-strands for the larger diameters.

Beautiful strong rope
Good quality product in my opinion.
Really nice rope, may look like sisal but is almost as nice on the hands as cotton is. Two thumbs up from me.
An absolutely great product. I love working with this rope. I have found that the nominal rope diameter is a little more than advertised, perhaps it 'bulks up' in storage. If sizing is close on smallish blocks this may be an issue. If I think this may be the case I will go down one diameter size and put the rope on the stretch for a couple of weeks. Otherwise, I do not know were I would be without this product!
Absolutely amazing rope and fantastic service.
This rope is fabulous, and the service from Classic Boats second to none
super fast delivery thanks. looks awesome as balustrade for kids loft, up close has a wonderful earthy smell, reminiscent of horse stables
