3/16" 3 Strand Cotton

SKU: 0186
Weight: 0.01 lb


Knot & Rope Supply sells 100% natural cotton* rope and is made in the USA. This rope is unique to anything else on the market because it contains no synthetic fillers.

Other "cotton" ropes may sneak in polyester, polypropylene, rayon, or other synthetic fibers in the core strands in an attempt to cheapen the rope. Not us, this product is 100% the real deal.

Soft and supple, you'll find our cotton ropes are easy to knot and splice and are perfect for a variety of useful applications.

If you have pets that like to play with rope, cotton is the best choice. While we don't recommend that your pet ingest this rope, we know it's possible and cotton rope can certainly be a less harmful option compared to synthetic ropes or natural manila rope.

Please Note: When the rope for your order is cut to length and shipped it's possible that the fibers will expand. It's not uncommon for the ropes to increase almost a whole size in diameter. When the ropes increase in diameter, they will also shrink in length. Please be sure to order cut-to-length ropes a little longer than you will require. You may want to account for up to 15-20%  shrinkage in length. This occurs because we offer a 100% cotton rope product with no fillers. If your rope application is dependent on a certain diameter, please consider ordering a smaller size than is needed.

SPECIAL NOTE ON 3/16" ORGANIC STOCK: This is a VERY POPULAR item and we are running production on this as fast as we can, however you may experience shipping delays on this specific product.
