Hemp has the high standard of all fibers in the world because of its strength and durability. The raw fiber of hemp is being made into strong binder twines which is woven into burlaps. Twines are usually being produced from sisal which come from Yucatan and East Africa.
How it’s Made:
Threads are made from hemp fibers. Hemp fibers are weaved and twisted together to make the twine.(1)
Hemp twine is the strongest of all-natural fibers. It is also antibacterial and UV resistant.(2)
Hemp tends to absorb moisture and traps them to the core causing it to break and rot.(3)
Hemp rope was used in China as far back as 2,800 B.C. Hemp ropes were used for climbing, shipping, fishing, horsemanship and construction in history.(4)
Looking to the Future:
Industrial hemp is a very versatile product with many potential uses thus the policy of hemp cultivation is expected to change at the state and federal levels over the coming years.(5)
