Hempex - The Synthetic Alternative to Hemp Rope

Current stock: 0

type *

Traditional look with the strength, durability and performance of a synthetic. Nearly indistinguishable from Natural Hemp, Hempex has a softer hand, requires less maintenance and wont rot. 

Trusted by tall ships and classic craft around the world, Hempex also performs well in crossfit gyms, obstacle courses and playsets. 

The 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" diameters of Hempex rope make an excellent, long lasting rope for stair railings. See the stair rope and hardware section of our site for rope railing stanchions.

8mm hempex

Great rope. Soft and fairly pliable. I used it to make a rope halter for a horse. The 8mm was slightly bulky for what I wanted. But I love the look and am going to make another one out of the same rope just 6mm diameter this time.

Hempex - The Synthetic Alternative to Hemp Rope

R&W has the best service and orders are always correct and speedy. Have used this Hempex for years and have not found a better alternative to natural hemp. I have found that after a season of use the lays tend to pucker every foot or so to create bumps in the line. First time I brought it to R&W attention at the wooden boat show in Mystic they said they had not seen that happen before and promptly replaced it at no charge. the replacement eventually did the same thing. It is not excessive enough to bind up in wooden blocks but you can see it when you hold it in your hand. Except for that it is great and i still use it on all the boats I build.
