The Uno Thimble Slips Leads are classically simple and we love them! All our slip leads are designed to be eye catching, soft on the hand, malleable, waterproof, easy to find and hard wearing.
The main rope is made from PPM cord otherwise known as polypropylene multifilament fibre. It has incredible merits : lightweight, floats, mildew resistant, rot resistant, high breaking load, dries quickly, non-toxic and safe for humans and animals. The cord would more commonly be found on sailing yachts!
The whipping is made from 1.4mm paracord and the stop is braided from 4mm paracord. A cord originally used in the military because of its strength and flexibility. The whipping is strong enough to make it durable but soft enough to be malleable against the dogs neck. The braided stop moves smoothly, but has enough resistance to avoid slipping.
The stainless steel thimble was chosen to make the lead hard wearing and long lasting whilst helping the rope to glide smoothly. We know our leads get exposed to all kinds of crazy weather in the UK, thankfully this baby won't rust! The size of the thimble will change according to the cord diameter used.
