Fibre rope is made from either natural or synthetic fibres. The natural fibres come from plants and include manila, sisal and hemp. Synthetic fibres include nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene and polyester.
In the fabrication of fibre rope, a number of fibres of various plants are twisted together to form yarns, which are then twisted together in the opposite direction to the fibres to form strands. The strands are twisted in the opposite direction to the yarns to form the completed rope. The direction of twist of each element of the rope is known as the "lay" of that element. Twisting each element in the opposite direction puts the rope in balance and prevents its elements from unlaying when a load is suspended on it. The principal type of rope is the three-strand, right lay, in which three strands are twisted in a right-hand direction. Four-strand ropes, which are also available, are slightly heavier but are weaker than three-strand ropes of the same diameter.
