Kernmantle rope has a core (kern) of long twisted fibres in the center, with a braided outer sheath or mantle of woven fibres. The kern provides most of the strength (about 70%), while the mantle protects the kern and determines the handling properties of the rope (how easy it is to hold, to tie knots in, and so on). Several of the books in the bibliography illustrate the technique of turning fiber into cordage. Also, there are several sites on the Internet that illustrate the process of twisting fiber into cordage. If you are interested, do a Google search for "cordage" and "primitive skills". Bibliography: Survival Skills of Native California - Paul Campbell.

The sector of fibre rope technology has witnessed unimaginable change and technological advance over the previous couple of many years.

Fiber rope is used in many industries for different purposes. Climbing rope, accessory cords, high-force composite, pulling, lifting, stringing, marine and non-safety or pulling rope all feature different components in the constructions, lengths and materials.

As far as we know, the only comprehensive book on this subject was Himmelfarb’s () The Technology of Cordage Fibres and Ropes; it focused on natural fibres, barely mentioned man-made fibres and completely omitted several modern types of rope construction. Following an introduction to fibre ropes, the Handbook of fibre rope technology takes a comprehensive look at rope-making materials, rope structures, properties and mechanics and covers rope production, focusing on laid strand, braided, low-twist and parallel yarn ropes.

Terminations are also introduced and the many uses of rope are illustrated. The field of fibre rope technology has witnessed incredible change and technological advance over the last few decades. At the forefront of this change has been the development of synthetic fibres and modern types of rope construction.

This handbook updates the history and structural mechanics of fibre rope technology and describes the types and properties of modern rope-making.

Such natural rope or string can be used for many things including bow-and-drill friction fires, as a snare or fishing line, as lashing in shelter construction, repairing or creating clothing, and much more.

The Story Of Rope Everybody knows what rope is, but everybody does not know how rope is made or of what kinds of fiber it is manufactured.
