What am I the root of all kinkiness now? lmao.
B&Q isn't so good for rope, a decent chandlers is where you want to
go. Or I have a guy in the netherlands makes most of mine to-order.

I'll be feckingoff now.

I believe if you get a length of kernmantle climbing rope, and remove
the 'kern' keeping the mantle, you'll have just what you want. You can
do this by pushing the mantle over the core, which increases its
diameter and loosens it.

I can't remember when I was told to do this, but the result is a very
flexible braided, tubular 'rope', usually thick enough for what you
want, especially if you start with a thick rope, as obviously it
stretches and gets thinner than the original.

I'd have thought plain white would be best for stage work, but obviously
you could have whatever colours/patterns you can find offcuts of in a
caving/climbing shop. Steve at Bernie's in Ingleton would be a good
starting point, and he sometimes has odd thicknesses - heavier
kernmantle stuff sometimes gets used by the military, even though it's
too thick for most abseiling/SRT kit. I got an excellent Petzl
left-handed non-reflective-black ascender from Bernies or Inglesports
some years back - mil surplus.

Sometimes it's useful being sinister...

Regards,

Simonm.

The white rope I use is usually the 6mm or 12mm braided white cotton,
girl sells it on ebay, I usually buy it by the 100 metre then sell off
some surplus, I'm not sure it'd be stiff enough for magic work though,
but I do have 20 metres of white semi-synthetic which is notably
stiffer, probably due to the synthetic core but the outer doesn't slip
like you'd expect, that's the stuff...

can't remember where I got it mind. had it a couple of years.

I hardly ever use it though, it might want to retire to a more
innocent line of work.
