I attended a few days of 'medieval week' in Visby, Gotland, Sweden. One thing I did there was, with help, make a short rope. The fibre used was jute, which is not the most authentic medieval material for Sweden - jute is native to India - but at least it's vegetable fibre and not plastic. With the right equipment, making ropes is quite easy. Thanks to Stefan Blomgren for allowing me to make this video with him.
