Solid Colored Rope from Des Pawson's book
« on: July 13, 2006, 04:12:42 PM »

Does anyone know a source for the Solid Colored braided rope similar to that in the photographs in Des Pawson's Handbook of Knots?

Thank you,

If you live in Britain try on of the following:
Footrope Knots,
01473 690090,

KLK Ropework,
01884 860692

Tradline Rope and Fenders
01788 891761

Twistlink Ltd
0116 2361860

I have personal experience with the first 2, and they know what they are talking about, and both normaly stock solid colour braided cord in several sizes. The first is Des Pawson himself. I have no personal experience with the other two.

If you are in the Netherlands, try
Het Touwhuis,
Goudsekade in Rotterdam, I do not have the number nor the internet address at this moment but if you think it is helpfull I will look for them for you.
I am afraid that I can not help you with addresses in the rest of the world.
If you can give us an indicator where you live and if you can use online shops, I am sure one of the members in the same part of the world will help you along.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Actually, I'm not from Britain nor the Netherlands but from the US.

Is anyone aware of any US sources?
