coir rope
Coir rope is made from coir fiber extracted from the outer covering of the coconut. The fiber these days are all extracted by machines. The coir fiber is relatively waterproof and is one of the few natural fibers resistant to damage by salt water. It is biodegradable. The coir fiber is twisted to 2 ply coir yarn either by automatic machine or by hand. Several yarns are twisted to form a strand and 3 or 4 strands are twisted to form the coir rope. The thickness and the number of yarns used in the strand of a rope will depend on the diameter of the rope you require.
