Cotton rope is a very tactile rope often used for animal halters, pet toys, and decorative rope work. Braided cotton rope or cotton cord, as some people call it, is very easily dyed which makes it popular for retail displays and commercial interior designs. Our cotton rope ranges from 6mm to 32mm diameter which is available by the metre or reel.
This soft rope is very easy to splice and extremely comfortable to handle. Though twisted cotton rope has many favourable characteristics, it is not resistant to water, oils, and other chemicals.
If using natural cotton for bannister ropes or handrail ropes, we would recommend using 1 inch cotton rope to 1.4 inch cotton rope (24mm diameter to 36mm diameter) as these diameters will fit our rope fittings, giving a perfect finish to any project.
