In lieu of a custom color for September, we have a prototype rope we're considering adding to our Exotics line! This is your opportunity to be part of The Twisted Monk's beta-testing team and influence a new rope option- Relaxed Hemp!
This organic hemp rope features triple-combed fibers and a longer more loose-lay spin, similar to that of a hand-laid rope. This results in a softer rope with a gentler hand and smoother finish. The finely milled base fibers give this rope an on-skin feel falling nicely between that of comfy cotton and typical hemp. Where our standard hemp is like a crisp new pair of selvage denim jeans, Relaxed Hemp is a comfy pair perfectly broken in.
Relaxed Hemp prototype rope is available now in extremely limited quantities, being made available at a introductory reduced price.
10% of proceeds from Relaxed Hemp will be donated to Seattle's Alley Cat Project.

Much like any good beach-combing prize, our Sea Glass is a rare prize. Available in our world-renowned 6mm hemp while supplies last.
