    cheapest sisal rope?

    Where do you all get your sisal rope? I can't seem to find it at stores... where have you found the cheapest price(s) online?

    On e-Bay there's 1/4" x 100' for about $10 (with the shipping) but not sure if that's a good deal or not.

    Thanks everyone!!

    I buy mine at Walmart. Its not treated or anything. Just 100% natural sisal. 1/4"
    It cost I think about $3 for 50ft. So nice amount for the price. They also have really thin jute, 200ft for $2!

    Oh really??? What section of Walmart is it in? I've looked before but could only find hemp in the Fabrics/Crafts section.

    Re: cheapest sisal rope?

    Found it!! The 100' of sisal was under $6. And then they had two different cotton ropes, both 100' each. The thicker one was under $6 and the thinner one was under $3.

    I ended up buying the cotton rope instead of sisal 'cause it seems easier to wash by throwing it in the washing machine... now to make my ladder/net!!

    That looks great!!

    Haha my first net didn't make it. It turned out horrible :[ But wow, you did great!

    It totally beats going and buying when you can make one that looks professional for a few bucks
