    I bought some of this hemp rope http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=15780 which has just beed delivered. A bit disappointed as I wanted to take it to a fet party with me tonight but is smells like mouldy hay- ie like it has been damp at some point. I'll sling it in the washing machine and see it that improves the situation. I don't think its just me as I normally like the smell of hemp rope. :( I wonder if this is because the rope is untreated? Hemp I've had in the past was treated as it came from a shirbari rigger. It doesn't say either way in the description so I guess I just assumed it was treated.

    It shouldn't smell like that really - right now on my desk I have a natural hemp wool hat, and it doesn't smell.

    I hope the smell goes - although I tend to hand wash all hemp items. I think bia carb can help get rid of that damp smell too, although might be best to google.
