Model Shipways Jewelry Nylon Rigging Line - BLACK 0.5mm x 9m
Originally made from European, Russian, and American hemp and sisal. By the mid-19th century, lighter, stronger and more able Manila hemp rope was used.

Standing rigging took on a much darker color than the running rigging because it was treated more often.Dimension is line diameter x length.
