I really like how bamboo dyes well with bright colors and feels very soft and flexible. Maybe I will have to try that for my next non-paracord sling.

My final hour is at hand. We face an enemy more numerous and cunning than the world has yet seen. Remember your training, and do not fear the hordes of Judas. I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES! Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none! -Jesus the Noodler

Linen sling.  The greasy one is wax.  😁 I wax hemp and linen.  It increases durability.

A few new slings that I finally got round to finishing. A hemp fibre balearic with hempx (polypropylene) braided into the tail+ A couple of seatbelt slings.

Trying out an Egyptian-style sling with a flat pouch.
Cords are linen, and the pouch is hemp.

Real nice slings. I haven't made any for a while now. I do have an Egyptian sling that's half finished and then I wanted to try and redo the cords for some of my previously made Egyptian slings.

Dang! Everyone is stepping up their game!@Kick @AlbionSlinger, I also want to make an Egyptian style sling. I need to make a mini loom though.

@AlbionSlinger What did you whip the end of the release cord with? Or is that sewn?

Sewn. It came undone today, but I think sewing is the best route to take for a smooth, inline finish. I think it would also work a lot better with a 4 strand braid rather than the twisted cords on this one.

Try out the twinning over sticks method. Don't need a loom then just some wooden skewers.
