The Rope We Use and Recommend What is in Mx. Knotty’s Rope Bag?
For harnesses, she uses 6mm natural jute;
For uplines, she uses 6mm posh jute;
In her bag and on her person she always has safety sheers;
We buy most of our rope from Damn Good Rope Company (DGRC)
Feel free to use our discount code: KnottySaves

Jute Rope - Natural or POSH
Hemp Rope - Natural or POSH
We recommend buying conditioned rope unless you are prepared to process it before you put it on a person’s body. (unless your bottom enjoys the pain ;).
DGRC’s website explains all the different options.
We condition all our rope ourselves because of how much we buy. It is more cost effective to do it ourselves.
For a beginner rope collection, we recommend getting at least two 30’ buddles.
$12 - $48
We like to get the kit DGRC offers that comes with six 30’ and four 15’ bundles.
$96 - $200
What we DO NOT recommend:
Cotton rope is not allowed in our classes or Rope Bites
*We do not like cotton because it is too stretchy, when someone pulls on the rope it is likely your knot will tighten and collapse causing it to then turn into a sinch. A sinch will pull tighter and tighter on the bunny's limb which can cause the limb to lose circulation, may cause nerve damage, and is extremely hard to untie.
