The process of making rope is one of
twisting and spinning, similar to spinning yarn from wool. The direction in which the
strings are twisted is very important. The strings are twisted in one direction. The
strands (made of four strings each) are twisted together in the opposite direction. The
finished rope is held together with counter twisting forces.
This video shows you how to prepare the hair, spin the strands, knot, tie
and finish a beautiful hand made horse hair rope.
