A rope is a twisted or braided collection of yarns, plies, fibers, or strands that have been twisted or braided together to produce a bigger and stronger structure. Ropes may be used for dragging and pulling since they have tensile strength. Rope is thicker and more durable than cord, thread, and twine of similar construction.

Rope can be made of any long, stringy, fibrous material, although it is most commonly made of natural or synthetic fibers. Synthetic fiber ropes are much stronger than natural fiber ropes, have a greater tensile strength, are more resistant to rotting, and can be manufactured to float on water. However, synthetic rope has certain drawbacks, such as slipping, and some can be destroyed more quickly by UV radiation.

Manila hemp, hemp, linen, cotton, coir, jute, straw, and sisal are all common natural fibers for rope. Polypropylene, nylon, polyesters (e.g. PET, LCP, Vectran), polyethylene (e.g. Dyneema and Spectra), Aramids (e.g. Twaron, Technora, and Kevlar), and acrylics are some of the synthetic fibres used in rope manufacturing (e.g. Dralon). Some ropes are made up of a combination of fibers or employ co-polymer fibers. Steel or other metal alloys are used to make wire rope. Other fibrous materials, such as silk, wool, and hair, have been used to make ropes, but they are not widely accessible. Rayon is a regenerated fiber that is used in the production of ornamental rope.


The twist of the strands in a twisted or braided rope assists to hold the rope together as well as distribute strain more equally across the individual strands. The shortest strand(s) would always support a considerably larger proportion of the overall load if the rope was not twisted.

Many techniques have been used to describe the size of a rope over the years since rope has such a lengthy history. Large ropes exceeding 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter ” such as those used on ships ” are measured by their circumference in inches in systems that employ the inch (Imperial and US customary measuring systems); smaller ropes have a notional diameter based on the circumference divided by three (as a rough approximation of pi).

The nominal diameter is provided in millimetres in the metric method of measurement. The mass per unit length, in kilos per metre, is the current recommended international standard for rope sizes. Despite the fact that most sources use metric measurements, big ropes may still be given a “rope number,” which indicates the circumference in inches.

Since prehistoric times, rope has been utilized. It is critical in a variety of disciplines, including building, shipping, exploration, sports, theater, and communications. To tie ropes, connect ropes, and use rope to produce mechanical advantage, a variety of knots have been invented. Pulleys can reroute a rope’s pulling force, double its lifting or pulling strength, and disperse a load across various portions of the same rope to enhance safety and reduce wear.
