How to Coat Hemp Rope?

I found your site and hope you might be able to answer my question. I am using hemp rope to wrap supporting posts in a decorative living space and believe that it might be best to coat them for preservation. What can I coat them with? Varnish? Shellac? Wax? Etc? Thank you for your assistance in this small project, Chuck Moutvic

#1. Wax, or simply letting them be, they should last for years depending upon how much abrasion they recieve. I’d wax high-use areas though. Greg Willson
A #2. Hemp yarn can be coated with potato starch, maize starch, pve alcohol etc. Jakir Hossain, Dhaka, Bangladesh
