Hemp Twist Cord

    In Colonial America, hemp was an invaluable commercial industry, a plant harvested to make many products for everyday use, like ship sails and ropes (since it resists salt damage). Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) Is a versatile, sustainable resource which today has been all but shut down in the U. S. by government regulations. Luckily, through history enthusiasts who need it for accurate impressions, it is now making a comeback.

    Six strands are twisted together, then polished, giving you a stronger, more tightly spun product with an exceptionally uniform finish, for fishing lines, tump lines, or hawking bags.
