Manila rope is a natural fiber made from the abaca plant. It has low stretch and good abrasion resistance. It has poor chemical resistance and is subject to rot. Meets Federal Specifications number TR605, Type M.

For the hard core traditionalist - this stuff can be tarred and whipped and made to walk the plank.
