Sisal rope hard natural fiber has many characteristics of manila but offers 80% of its strength. Sisal is more economical than manila. It must be stored dry to avoid mildew. Chemicals will cause the rope to deteriorate. Provides great knot holding ability and is sunlight resistance. Warning: Do not use in situations where personal safety could be endangered. Never use this product to secure large flat surfaces or objects that could "airplane." Misuse could result in serious injury or death.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • 100% sisal
  • Biodegradable and recyclable

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for making my parrot toys ! I purchased this rope to make my parrot some toys. This size was perfect as I have made him quite a few already and there is plenty left to make a few more. So Max the parrot says THANKS Home Depot ! July 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed I had an unconventional use for this. I bought a case of these and used this to wrap around the upright portions of my 2 home made cat perches. This rope allows them to get a firm grip while climbing up and also provides a good surface at the bottom (where I used extra rope) for claw sharpening. May 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good natural fiber rope I used this rope to make a scratching post for my cat. I wanted natural fiber and this fit the bill. Cat loves it and so does my furniture as it is no longer the scratching post. Fair price too... you can buy longer lengths online but for this length and size the price compared with online deals. I've also purchased the larger diameter of this product months ago and it looks like it will last for years. March 27, 2012

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is great for tying up and supporting new trees Bought it for tying up some newly planted trees to support stakes. Great product for that. Is gental on the bark of the new trees. A little high on the price, but it did a good job on what we bought it for. November 17, 2011
