Making Rope with

 Horsehair

 

NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE
AT THIS TIME

 

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.

LLAVES:
All the llaves (tools) are made of wood except the crank and hook on the backstrap crank, the wire loop used to tie the button knot, and the carriage bolts and washers for the handles of the taravias.

This book shows you how to make the tools, prepare the hair, spin the strands, knot and tie and finish a beautiful hand made horse hair rope.
