Angus Barrett Saddlery Rope Halters are made from 8mm Australian made yachting rope which is made from a polyester material. This material is UV and rot resistant and retains its strength when wet compared to some nylon materials which can lose up to 20% of their strength when wet.
This rope is double braided which means that there are two braided ropes combined into one for added strength. There is a core through the middle, and an outer layer. The double braid creates a low elongation which means that the rope can take a significant amount of strain before it fails.
The rope can be washed in cold water and with a mild detergent if needed. Rope halters should be washed in water by hand, not in a washing machine, to prevent any knots from loosening.
