Making Rope with
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 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.
