Review KINK ROPE
Rope is the original bondage and restraint tool, and finding the right rope for the job is essential for safe, pleasurable play. Here you have a natural hemp rope in a 6mm width which is ideal for beautiful, flat knots, and pretty tying styles. We often sell 8mm rope as it’s easier to create restraint that allows for full blood flow and more comfortable suspension -if you’re into that type of thing. Those things can be done with 6mm rope too though, just mind your safety and create more wraps to disperse body weight over a larger area.
The flexible hemp fibers of this rope bend with the body and slide smoothly across skin for the optimal comfort and safety of the bound partner, and offer a moderate amount of friction to keep your knots firm yet easy to undo. The versatility, strength, and smooth whipped ends of this rope make it perfect for full restraint, shibari, and many other rope play styles. It’s also ready to use out of the box.
We sometimes carry hemp rope from a different company too. If you're comparing the two, that rope comes in other colors, lengths and diameters, and is slightly softer than this rope.

Care and Upkeep
Rope gets softer and weaker with use. The weave relaxes and the fibers become more supple. A well loved piece of rope will resemble your favorite pair of jeans. Repeated washing will accelerate this process and reduce the overall tensile strength.
For most bondage uses, repeated washings are just fine and your rope will last you for years, however if you intend to use your rope for load-bearing play, such as suspension bondage, then you will need to be extra careful using older, laundered rope.
Remember: Suspension bondage is dangerous. Seek proper training before attempting and always inspect your rope and hardware before use. When in doubt, replace it.
We suggest storing your rope in loose coils or braids. To wash your hemp rope, place it into an old pillowcase or laundry bag, and tie it at the top. You can put your rope in loosely or loosely knot it as in a chain sinnet (that’s the one where you loop it and pull another loop through each consecutive loop). Wash with like colors.
Wash on the shortest, gentlest, cycle possible using cold water, and a small amount of gentle soap. Use an extra spin setting if available to remove excess water, to reduce your drying time.
Allow your rope to hang dry for about two days. If you knotted it, unknot it and let dry for a few more days. Rope may take 4-5 days to fully dry depending on the humidity.
If you wash your rope, you’ll want to re-oil it. Apply a very light application of scent free baby oil to your hands or a cloth and run the rope lengths through a few times. Do not use plant- or animal- based oils as they can quickly become rancid, destroying your rope.
