5mm Cotton Rope 1000 ft

$ 110.00

The ultimate all-purpose rope, our 5mm cotton rope is our best selling and most popular. Easy to work with, soft on the hands and with a sturdy character, this appealing material lends itself perfectly to plant hangers, wall hangings and arbors.


As we move toward more sustainable practices we are discontinuing this size and style of spool. We are now offering a 600ft spool of the same high quality, cotton rope that you love but on a cardboard cone that is 100% recyclable. This new packaging will eliminate unnecessary waste, lower our damages and improve the cost of shipping because these cones are lighter weight.

We are excited to pass these savings on to you! Please enjoy the last of these spools in this quantity and thank you for supporting our small, women-run business as we strive for a more sustainable future.

*As we transition this product to 100% Recycled Pre Consumer Waste Cotton, there are some colors that we have a back stock of non-recycled cotton inventory that we are working through. Our most recent shipment that arrived from our manufacturer was 100% recycled cotton and we are working towards all variants being 100% recycled cotton throughout 2022.

**Lengths are approximate and may vary slightly from spool to spool

***Please note that even though we do our very best to display our colors as accurately as possible, actual colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. In addition there may be slight color variation between different manufacturing batches; exact color-matching of older and newer yarn may not be possible.
