Frequently Asked Questions


What are the differences between Hemp Cord and Hemp Twine?

Hemp Cord is made from multi-plied yarn while hemp twine which is made from single-ply yarn. So, what’s the difference? Due to the fineness of using multi-ply yarn and construction, hemp cord is virtually free of defects. It does not contain the knots and kinks, nor does it have frizzy hairs that are commonly associated with hemp twine.

What does 20# mean?

The “#” refers to pounds. Therefore, this indicates that the cord has the test strength of holding 20 pounds (9 kilograms) before it will weaken and eventually break. Global Hemp Cord is offered in 5 test strengths: 10#, 20#, 48#, 100#, and 170#.

Why is hemp measured in millimeters and not inches?

Hemp Cord varies in size from 0.5 mm to 3 mm (millimeters). The metric system is used as 1 mm is equivalent to 3/64 inch. However, this is a unit of measurement that most users are not familiar with as its such a small fraction of an inch. Therefore, once a user is familiar with the size of a millimeter, its easy to compare the various sizes against one another. For example, 3 mm hemp cord is three times thicker than 1 mm.
