At The Twisted Monk, we make our ropes small-batch and every rope is cut and hand-finished to order just for you! Don't get left hanging, be sure to get your order in early to ensure delivery by February 14th!
We will be closed from Friday, 12/21/2018 at 6pm till Wednesday ,12/26/2018 at 8am so our hard working crew can enjoy the holiday and get some well deserved rest and relaxation.

You spoke, we listened, and Relaxed Hemp has joined our Exotics line!
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.
We're proud to announce that S-Twist 6mm hemp ropes are back in production! Orders placed November 12th, and after, will automatically be converted and no additional action is needed. Orders placed before November 12th are currently being packed and shipped and should see tracking information before the Thanksgiving holiday. Unfortunately orders currently in packing/shipping, including some NOTFORXMAS orders, cannot be converted. Tannenbaum will remain Z-Twist throughout the duration of it's run.

We're reprising our incredibly popular Tannenbaum rope, and we'll be making it through the entire month of November!
Tannenbaum is our world-famous 6mm hemp, tightly spun in a Z-twist style, dyed to a lovely rich shade of green reminiscent of holiday wreaths and Douglas Fir boughs (or British racing cars).
10% of proceeds from Tannenbaum will be donated to two charities: Mary's Place and the Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh's Our Victims of Terror Fund.

We are currently experiencing an impact to our raw materials which effects our 6mm hemp ropes. The machine which spins our hemp ropes recently broke beyond repair and required outright replacement. Unfortunately this new machine currently is not producing rope which meets our standards of quality and safety.
We have secured an alternate supply which, while being made of a superior quality hemp than was previously available, is spun in the reverse from our traditional hemp ropes- a counter-clockwise "Z-twist" rather than our usual clockwise "S-twist" (our POSH, Cotton, and Bavarian Blonde ropes are and have always been Z-twist). This change does not impact the color, function, performance, or safety but does mean it will not visually match the spin of our previous product.
This is a temporary change while our supplier's machinery is retooled to produce these higher quality ropes in our traditional S-twist, however we do not have an exact timeline for this. Note that this is currently only effecting our standard stock 6mm hemp ropes. All other ropes, including 4mm and 8mm hemp ropes, are unaffected.
Please note that due to these changes, combined with unseasonably high volume, some orders are taking a few days over our usual 10 business days for production.
Customers with existing orders will be contacted directly regarding next steps. We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
