Whipping Twine

Perfect for marine use and much more, our Kingfisher waxed, polyester twisted whipping twine works brilliantly with synthetic ropes. Strong, hardwearing and waterproof – they’re ideal for whipping smaller diameter ropes. Whipping provides a neat, soft, aesthetic and permanent end to the rope and prevents fibres from unravelling.

Why whipping twine is perfect for marine use:

  • It helps prevent a rope’s natural tendency to fray
  • Helps stop unravelling
  • Provides neater and tidier ends
  • Offers better support structure
  • Waterproof properties

How to whip the end of a rope:

  • Cut off the part of rope that is fraying or unravelling
  • Cut the whipping twine at a suitable length to wrap around the rope end several times
  • Make a loop along the rope, leaving a short distance from the end of the rope
  • Now wrap the twine tightly over and around the loop, laid along the rope, several times so it has enough support
  • Once you’ve wrapped the twine around the rope and loop, place the working end of the twine through the loop end underneath
  • Then pull on the opposite, standing end of the twine to tighten up both ends, locking the loop under the whipping thread, before cutting twine ends off
