However, there are some advantages and improvements with this one which I will go over. Pros:. Both breaking strain and rating provided. As a solid braid, this is much stronger than the polypropylene webbing mentioned above. You can almost see the scratchiness. Cons:. Excellent give and flex, and there’s something truly awesome about the way it moves in your hands and when you’re wrapping it around someone. It makes the experience of tying someone a lot more fun. It feels basically like nylon rope, but is nowhere near as pricey. When I last used it in a lesson, the model exclaimed over how nice it felt.
Pros:. Jute is similar to hemp in that it has excellent tooth; no issues whatsoever with using hitches etc. I hope this post was useful for people wanting to learn about the different types of rope! Also, one last note – in addition to your rope kit, I highly recommend a fun new toy I got in 2019, which combines very well with bondage. Because it’s a natural fibre rope with decent tooth, you can do shibari and other styles of rope that rely on friction over knots, which is pretty great. You can take some great pictures with it; the rope in these pictures is that same cotton braid.
A Bunnings, Mitre 10, or other hardware store will have you covered for most things; the Internet will get the rest. You’re going to need a decent diameter on your rope. This is pretty cool because you don’t get bulky, unsightly looking knots. Small knots; sits flat over skin. Pro: Perfectly fine for most types of bondage (other than suspension). Pro: Nylon and MFP takes dye very well, resulting in brilliant color. In summary, cotton is pretty great for most forms of bondage other than suspension. You can do a lot with it, it’s cheap, washable, etc.
Good flex and texture. It is considerably stronger than the Zen rope I just mentioned; and again, is rated. It makes the experience of tying someone a lot more fun. Durability; Tossa Jute can take a lot of use before it begins to wear. It comes in a range of different colours (I like black). It’s incredibly light.
If you want to buy your own natural fiber rope and condition it yourself so that it is ready to use for bondage without being too prone to giving you or your partner rope burn, McVarij has a nice tutorial on what you need to do. Perhaps after doing this yourself once or twice, you will understand why bondage rope vendors charge what they do for bondage-ready rope!

Pros:. Jute is similar to hemp in that it has excellent tooth; no issues whatsoever with using hitches etc. I got my first set of five millimeter jute from Jade Rope (fairly large set, about 80 metres) for about $113.00 Australian dollars before shipping. I don’t remember exactly how much I paid in NZD, but it was between $150.00 to $180.00 with shipping included. Tossa jute is just freaking amazing, and has given me very much the results that I wanted, when I wanted them. Yes, I had to break it in fairly extensively; but once that was done, it’s always served me well.
