Since clothesline has gotten expensive, I have started searching for cheap rope to use in fabric baskets. I make bunches of them for gifts and for benefits.
I have found a cheap poly rope that works very well for this purpose. Ace Hardware has it for $1 to $2 for a 72ft roll. It is typically in a bin in the middle of the main aisle, with extra in the rope dept.
My local Ace sold out, so I had to find another Ace hardware, but they had it. Yeah!!! So I bought the 15 rolls that they had.
So, if you need cheap rope for baskets, find yourself an Ace hardware store.
