Rope note 05

I am taking the 100 ropes out of the freezer today, packing up and
going over to Inverness to start to install the work. They will need
a full 24 hours aclimatising before I can unpack them.

rope note 05
'In Lewis coir rope was known as Sìoman Thearlach (Charles' rope) because
it was supplied by Charles Morrison, a Stornoway merchant (Stornoway
gazette 27 July 1951)'
source Highland Folk Ways by I.F.Grant

this is grass rope on my studio floor
