Avoiding fuzzy thread

This is to discuss all aspects about Rigging both Standing and Running such as Shrouds, Ratlines, Stays, Deadeyes, Blocks of all types, etc. How do you do it? Got any shortcuts or tips to share?

Hi Chuck

Yout rope looks fantastic! Soon I begin to make my own rope for my build. I made rope walk and try it, its working!
But what I see, I mast make some ropes for learning. So, for start I need informations. What thread to use, I try cotton and polyester. Here in Croatia is difficult to find cotton and when I find it, I dont like a color. How You manage the color of Your ropes? What I see from the picture, black ropes is not made from black threat, looks very realistic.

regards
Barba

Very nice work, must try with brown combination. If is not a problem, what thickness is the rope on picture,
For now, I have more problems with smaller rope.

Chuck, thanks for information, You give me a lot to work to.

I thought of the last picture, but dasn't matter, you explained everything with this picture. I'm about to start testing soon enough.
I'm happy with a build so far, so I want this part(riging) to be on the same level,
