Prices incl. VAT plus shipping costs

Tarred hemp twine (housing). The classic material for whipping and for a variety of other uses.
Diameter approx. 4mm.

For servicing the standing rigging of 14-20mm diam.

Supplied in coils or spools.

Tarred yarn has been used for centuries on sailing ships, to serve standing rigging, as well as for tying ratlines and hanks.
In Scandinavia especially, the twine made from two yarns tarred caulk (Dansk Merling) is used for fancy work.
MARLINE, made from 3 threads (when PP it is only made from 2 threads), is suitable for example for serving wires of 14mm maximum.
HOUSING is made from 4 threads (when PP it is only made from 3 threads) and is commonly used for serving and tying in of ratlines.
SPUNYARN is made from 7-8 threads and is mostly used to serve thick splices
Additionly we offer a somewhat thinner 5-strand SPUNYARN which has been proven to serve wires from 20mm thickness.

Historically these yarns are made from hemp which has to be impregnated in Swedish tar for conservation. Because wood tar is, unfortunately, washed out by rain and spindrift, the rig has to be newly tarred regularly.
Nowadays the yarns may alternatively be made from rot-proof polypropylene (PP) staple fibre (SPLEITEKS). As a protection against UV rays these also have to be tarred now and then, but they forgive a lack of maintenance much better than natural fibres.
