Is it essential for the rope in a long case clock to be braided

Resolved Question:

Is it essential for the rope in a long case clock to be braided and have a core? Is stranded hemp not an option? much easier to make a supple "seamless" long splice.

Hello. My name is Michael. I can help you with your question.

Yes! Stranded Hemp is an excellent option. Hemp type ropes are natural, very supple, will support the load and are relatively easy to splice for use in clocks. Finding a reliable source is the trick.

In fact, this is one of the preferred materiels for a clock, and definitely the best alternative to synthetics. Here is more informaiton you might find helpful:
