Frequently Asked Questions

Not all sellers give you the length of the spool, which is really important when you want to calculate how much you need for each piece. We sell all rope calculated at 10 cent per metre, and we aways mark really clearly how many metres are on each spool.

If you have queries on a project, get in touch – we are MAKERS as well as ROPE SELLERS.

The type of yarn you buy depends on the project you are making.  If you are making feathers or really fringed projects, we recommend buying untwisted 1-ply rope, as it is easier to brush out and fringe to a ‘boho’ look.

A lot of plant hangers and wallhangings are 3-ply.  This gives you the option to leave the hanging strings looking like rope, or brushing out to a fluffier effect

This will depend of course, but if you need any help with guessing rope needed, get in touch with us by emailcareCHARACTER SEQUENCE@macrame.ie. A 260 metre spool should make one medium-large wallhanging.  You will get about 8-10 plant hangers from this size spool

This is just preference.  Some people prefer to work with 3mm or 4mm ropes.  If you are starting off, it is nice to work in these sizes to get used to the feel of the rope and patterns.  3mm can give a really neat, detailed finish. 

Small and detailed projects might need 2mm ropes.  If you are making rainbows, opt for 5.5mm to 6.5mm for the interior.
