The beginner's silk rope kit is a fabulous buy for beginners in the rope bondage world! I myself am not well versed in actual rope tying but I have recently started learning. I am, however, pretty familiar with being tied up at this point.

So, from the point of view of someone being tied up, this rope feels wonderful! The silk feels great against your skin, and because it's so soft it doesn't leave rope burn. You might get a rope pattern pressed into your skin but nothing that's likely to stick around for long after you're done playing.

From the point of view of someone tying the knots, the silk holds knots deceptively well. You would think that being so soft and smooth the knots would slip out, but there is actually a decent hold!

The ropes come in a simple cardboard box stating the contents, and with a picture. It's pretty matter-of-fact but you still probably don't want to open the package around others unless you know they are ok with an item of this nature.

The kit consists of two neatly coiled silk ropes. Each rope is 6 feet long which is a really great beginner length. 6 feet gives you plenty of length to work and learn with, but it's not so long that you will be fumbling with and getting tangled in the extra rope. One of the few drawbacks to this rope is that the ends are not completely finished. If kept properly they should not unravel easily but it is a possibility.

Since this rope is silk, it should be treated accordingly. Silk does not do well in hot water, so it should be hand washed in tepid or lukewarm water with a gentle detergent like what you might use for delicate lingerie. It should either be laid flat or hung to dry. Because of its delicate nature and pickiness about drying and heat, this rope can't really be sanitized so be sure to be careful about what the ropes come in contact with and who they come in contact with.
Follow-up commentary
I have to amend my first review a bit. I went by the information on the EF product page about the material these ropes are made of, but in looking at them, it didn't seem right so I checked the box.

These ropes are actually a silky feeling polyester, not actual silk like the product page says. The good news is that polyester is even easier to care for than silk. It can usually take higher temperatures and less gentle washing. It is however a synthetic so those with allergies to synthetics or a strong preference for more natural materials should stay away.

Despite being polyester, these ropes do have a nice silky feel and they have so far held knots really well! At this point, we haven't done anything crazy with them, but they are great for basic square knots and common bondage techniques.

    I'm wondering how well this held knots and what sort of ties you used it for? Thanks for the helpful review.

    It held the knots beautifully but if you know what you're doing, most rope can be made to hold.

    I don't do much of the tying around here so I am not well versed in knots. It's not really long enough to use for anything like a full rope harness or suspension. It is mostly good for practicing binding hands and ankles.
