Silky Soft ... But Not Silk

This is a very nice feeling rope, great for beginners or sensual bondage play. It is NOT silk though, which was disappointing, it is 100% polyester. Once you get over that disappointment though you'll find they are very soft comfortable ropes, and they hold knots really well without slipping. The length is an issue as you're very limited on what you can do with them, but for a beginner they work well with restraining the arms or ankles.

extremely useful review
The Beginners Silk Rope Kit comes with two 6' lengths of 100% polyester rope, not silk. That being said it’s actually a very nice, soft, gentle rope that is great for beginners or couple wanting a short piece of rope to do a basic wrist restraint or for some cbt. The sections of rope are really too short for much else. They could be used to restrain each wrist or ankle to the bed, or whatever surface you are tying your partner to. They would also be used with a set of cuffs to more securely restrain your partner. They are very silky, slick pieces of rope however so some care should be taken to learn the proper way to tie your knots so they don't slide around or tighten too far on their own as this could be dangerous. Proper technique is very easy to learn though and should have already been researched prior to purchasing any kind of bondage item.

As I started these are made out of polyester, not silk, so they are actually very easy to clean and care for. When the need arises for you to wash your ropes; it’s best to do so in a sink or tub full of warm water and a mild detergent. Soak the rope in the soapy water for a few minutes, agitating it a bit and spot cleaning where necessary. Then rinse the ropes completely in cool water before stretching them out somewhere to dry. These are actually short enough that they could probably be draped over the shower rod or some such thing to dry them. I like to keep all my ropes coiled separately in the bottom of my toy cabinet so that they are easy to find and typically not tangled.

It should also be noted that the ends were unfinished (left kinda frayed) which isn't something you want to leave as it will cause the pieces to fray and snag and significantly shorten the life of your rope. It may be that they were just too lazy at the company to be bothered with finishing them for you or maybe they thought you'd want to choose your method of finishing yourself, who knows either way you should do a little research on the different ways this can be done. Considering how little this will be used I went for the old easy lighter method for these and just singed the ends until it was all melted together nice and secure. Other options include knotting the ends, wrapping the ends in tape (shoelace style) or wrapping them on string, many methods can be found online with full instructions on "how-to".

We got these because my boyfriend was curious about "silk ropes"; we have tons of other ropes so the length of these really wasn't an issue as it was more of a "how does it feel and do we want to invest in some real length of this" kind of endeavor. We were just looking to sample it really and that's about all that you can do with this set. Was sad to find they weren't real silk but it wasn't a total loss, they are still very soft and fun to incorporate into our lighter play time.
Follow-up commentary
I still love these; they are super soft and just perfect for simple wrist restraints. The only issue I've had is that they snag easily so be careful not to use them around anything rough; otherwise, they have held up great!
