Sisal For Cat Furniture Projects
Cats prefer woven sisal because their claws do not get caught in the sisal rope. It is a natural fiber derived from the ‘agave sisalana’ cactus plant and is not the same fiber as coir or jute.
Sisal is a strong durable fiber and therefore sisal carpets are a preference for area rugs.

An Alternative to Using Sisal Rope
While browsing on online for natural sisal rope, I came across Natural Fiber Manila Rope on Amazon.
Did you know that Manila Rope is stronger than Sisal Rope? Neither did I until I did some research on this fiber. Manila rope is a natural fiber which is sourced from the leaves of the abaca plant (banana native). Albaca fiber is flexible and resistant to salt water damage.
Do you know of other cat lovers who would like to make their own scratching posts? Why not split the cost of shipping by purchasing one large spool together?

Seagrass, a 100% natural biodegradable fiber is non toxic, anti static and anti bacterial. It also contains natural “Tannins” which repells dust mites and a good reason why seagrass natural fiber rugs, sold on Amazon, are a healthier choice for allergy sufferers.
