In this blog post, we will share creative DIY craft projects that you can make using versatile sisal rope. Made from the sisal plant, sisal rope is purely constructed from its natural fibres, making it hard-wearing and aesthetically pleasing. This traditional rope is especially resistant to sunlight and stretches very little. It is ideal for use in the garden and being natural it complements planting and timber work. Also used for cat scratching posts and parrot toys, Sisal goes well with swings and play equipment and it can be used both indoors or outdoors.
