Natural Fibre ropes

Natural fibre bell ropes are usually made of either Hemp or Flax. They are hard wearing and durable, but have some disadvantages such as being affected by the weather conditions and humidity, they can also be a little bit stretchy. In towers with a long draught, many people prefer to splice on a man made rope above the sally to reduce stretchiness.
