I use Marlow and i like it, its waxed which is nice (this small spool i'm on seems to have unwaxed itself towards the end). i've got a roll of Kingfisher which isn't as nice to use but all my splices get finished with red whipping (sorta trademark) so thats all teh chandlers had so thats what i bought.
I just ordered this from Knot and Rope Supply...they have a good site, I am going to try splicing some of their small double braid for yoga training ropes. I'll try various whipping twines to unique-asize each rope.
