This Everlasto 6mm natural sisal rope is a three strand rope made from the natural fibres produced by the Agave sisalana plant. Sisal is a strong rope that would traditionally have been used on ships. As it is a hairy coarse rope it has good grip which means it is good for use as a packaging rope especially in oily situations. It is also popular for use in decorative and craft aspplications where a rustic look is required. Smaller diameter sisal ropes are particulary popular for use in creating parrot and pet toys such as cat scratching posts.
