  • Description:
    I use hemp to craft lacrosse mesh kits. Regular lacrosse strings are made from nylon, which is a derivative of petroleum. Hemp is the world's strongest natural fiber, so it is not surprising that it works great for lacrosse mesh.It performs just as well as the mainstream stringing kits, but has some added benefits as well. It is actually netting, not a single piece of mesh like the kits made by brine and stx. I net them by hand, which results in a knotted mesh. As the pocket breaks in, the knots get a little tighter where the pocket forms. Another benefit of hemp over nylon is that the nylon warps in UV rays. Over a couple of seasons in the outdoors, the mesh will become distorted from the exposure to sunlight. I also dye the hemp with fiber reactive dyes which results in brilliant colors. The dye actually becomes chemically bonded to the hemp fibers. I also craft traditional pockets with hemp braids instead of leathers.
