Hemp is a plant is that has the ability to make strong fibres. The twinning fibre for rope making is obtained when the plant begins to flower. Depending on the rope you wish to make, some other materials may also be required. Hemp rope is made by separating the the fibres of the bast by cutting lengthwise, then by peeling fibres off, smooth the fibres then by twisting the fibres together. Not only is Hemp rope environmentally friendly and natural but is also naturally mold and mildew resistant. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 101 Answers 0 Best Answers 215 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-06-11T09:31:41-04:00Added an answer on June 11, 2020 at 9:31 am Step one: Separate the hemp fibers or unwind the hemp yarn and cut into lengths approximately twice as long as the desired length of the rope. Continue cutting until you have a bundle of fibers approximately half the size of the diameter of rope you’d like to make. Step two: Grab the bundle of fibers and fold it in half, securing the fold by placing a dowel rod through the resultant loop and into the ground. Smooth the fibers of this bundle down by running your hand along the length of the cord. Step three: Divide the bundle in two, holding half the fibers in your left hand and half the fibers in your right. Step four: Twist each bundle clockwise until the cord you are creating begins to kink and loop. Pull as hard as you can while twisting. Step five: Twist the two cords together, wrapping one over the other in a counterclockwise motion, to form a rope. Step six: Secure the ends with overhand knots beginning with the end in your hands. Once the first end is tightly tied, slip the rope off the dowel rod and tie it as well. To make a cable, repeat steps 2 through 6 and twist the two ropes together. This process can be repeated as many times as you like, making thicker, stronger cables as you go 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Seymour Simone 0 Questions 94 Answers 0 Best Answers 194 Points View Profile Seymour Simone 2020-06-13T21:55:09-04:00Replied to answer on June 13, 2020 at 9:55 pm Is hemp rope any stronger than normal rope? 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 148 Answers 0 Best Answers 316 Points View Profile wavess 2020-06-19T09:52:18-04:00Replied to answer on June 19, 2020 at 9:52 am Hemp rope can be made stronger or less strong than normal rope. As Hempmaster3000 stated above, “This process can be repeated as many times as you like, making thicker, stronger cables as you go.” The strength of your hemp rope depends on how many cables you choose to use. In other words, the amount of hemp fibre used to make the rope will determine how thick — and strong — the end result is. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 200 Answers 0 Best Answers 416 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-06-14T07:24:03-04:00Added an answer on June 14, 2020 at 7:24 am It’s easiest to begin with hemp fibers or yarn. Begin with either and cut it into lengths twice of the length of rope you intend to end with. Cut enough pieces until the bundle is about half of the diameter of your desired rope. Fold the bundled fibers in half, and place a dowel rod though the loop, then jab the dowel into the ground. Smooth the fibers with your hand. Divide the bundle in half, keeping one in each hand. Twist each section clockwise until it begins to loop and kink. Make sure you’re pulling the cord as taut as possible while you do this. Wrapping one over the other in a counterclockwise (opposite of what you just did) motion, twist the two sections together. Secure the ends with overhand knots. Once you have tied the first end securely, you can slide the other end of the dowel and secure it. To cable the rope, create another section, and then twist it with the previously created rope. You can repeat that process until your desired tensile strength and girth is achieved. I hope that made sense… 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 39 Answers 0 Best Answers 79 Points View Profile hempbarn32 2020-06-20T18:08:45-04:00Replied to answer on June 20, 2020 at 6:08 pm Is most Hemp rope made from synthetic hemp. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 115 Answers 0 Best Answers 247 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-06-11T01:29:46-04:00Added an answer on June 11, 2020 at 1:29 am So if you’re trying to make a lot of hemp rope you could invest in what’s called a “hemp rope maker”. Luckily, making your own hemp rope is pretty easy. You’ll need a tool called a wooden dowel and hemp fibers to assemble the rope yourself. Be sure to get your hemp fibers separated from the outer stalk. Roll those fibers in your lap until they’re tightly intertwined. Now with two people holding either end of this tough fiber, each twist the fiber in opposite directions. This should produce a tough and tightened final product. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 205 Answers 0 Best Answers 432 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-06-12T12:22:52-04:00Added an answer on June 12, 2020 at 12:22 pm This depends on where you start, if you are cutting stalk from the plant in the very beginning you will need to make sure to string it and roll it up first. When starting with hemp twine, it is similar to rolling any other twine into a rope. The first step is to, which is much easier with another person or tie one end to a pole, tightly pull the strings and begin to wrap them over one another as if braiding hair. Make sure to maintain a strong grip on them while twisting. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
