How It Works

Hemp is one of the more traditional types of rope used in rope bondage. It has a unique texture, and a lovely sweet grassy scent. Hemp is less prone to friction burns and the twisted construction holds knots better than braided rope while still being easy to untie.

Each length of rope from Twisted Monk has whipped ends (with a lifetime guarantee!), and is processed using vegan and allergen free oils.

Having a hard time deciding between the two kits? If you are very very new to rope, less rope means you won't spend as much time worrying about the extra. If you're worried about not having enough rope for comfort, the Robust Kit may be a better option.

Care Instructions

From Twisted Monk: 
Hemp rope is fairly easy to maintain and typically doesn't need much tending to unless it gets particularly dirty (ropes used for crotch-lines, for instance). Re-oiling isn't necessary unless rope has been washed, as during use the rope will absorb your natural body oils, keeping it soft and supple. We suggest storing your rope in loose coils or braids.

Rope gets softer and weaker with use. The weave relaxes and the fibers become more supple. A well loved piece of rope will resemble your favorite pair of jeans. Repeated washing will accelerate this process and reduce the overall tensile strength. Our conditioning process is intended to get the rope soft enough that it feels great against skin but not so soft that the fiber strength becomes dangerously degraded.

For most bondage uses repeated washings are just fine and your rope will last you for years, however if you intend to use your rope for load-bearing play, such as suspension bondage, then you will need to be extra careful using older, laundered rope.

To wash your rope:

Knot your rope and place it in a pillowcase before putting it in the washing machine. Wash in cold water on the shortest and most gentle cycle. Keep your rope knotted and allow it to hang dry for a few days. After untying the rope, you may need to let it dry for a few more days.
