Sisal Rope

What is it?


Sisal rope is made from natural fibres from the sisal plant. The fibres are stripped from the leaves and twisted to make string, twine or rope.

Good Things

  • Very low cost
  • Can be made by the user if sisal plants are available locally
  • Good grip on the pulley

Bad Things

  • May rot over time reducing the life of the rope
  • Not as strong as plastic rope
  • Sisal plants not available everywhere
