Did you know that more than 15 million tons of used textile waste is generated each year in the United States? And approximately two-thirds of that ends up in a landfill?
The special rope used in the Wayfarer Collection is made by upcycling that textile waste into silky soft cotton yarns that are twisted into plush 100% cotton rope. The Wayfarer Collection of rope dog leashes is completely eco-friendly and renewable. All rope is dye-free and upcycled using no water or harmful chemicals.
Every Green Trout Outfitters Wayfarer Leash is handmade right here in the USA, just for you. Colors are bright, bold and vibrant and won’t fade no matter how many times your leash gets dragged through mud and thrown in the wash.
Every leash purchased donates 1 native tree to a National Forest at risk of deforestation due to fire, disease, insects and more. Together we can rebuild our National Forests and help combat climate change.
SMALL rope for dogs under 20 lbs
MEDIUM rope for dogs up to about 60 lbs
LARGE rope for dogs 40+ lbs
All Wayfarer Rope Leashes are made with this 100% cotton rope using upcycled textile waste. Although we suggest the above sizing, the rope we use is extremely strong and durable!
SMALL rope breaking strength is 1,125 lbs
MEDIUM rope breaking strength is 1,500 lbs
LARGE rope breaking strength is 1,950 lbs
*Note that these are approximate for leashes without knots - adding knots to leashes decreases rope strength
Lobster Clasp - opens on a hinge for easy on & off, also a great option for those with poor hand dexterity
Bolt Clasp - traditional leash clasp that closes securely, ideal for dogs using gentle leaders, front-clip harnesses, or any harness that requires you to clip onto 2 rings
Slip Lead - no clasp, this option is best for easy on & off by slipping loop over the dog’s head
Every leash can easily be machine washed! No matter what walk, hike or adventure you take your GTO leash on - through rain, mud, sand and snow - you can rest assured that your leash will wash up like new every time!
***Each leash is handmade from beginning to end, so there may be slight variations in length. Due to the upcycle creation process, color may also vary slightly.
