Because it is made from braided cotton thread, tie line has a tendency to unravel over time. The more it is handled, the more likely it is to happen. Normally the unraveling does nothing but create a “fluffy” end, but in some cases the unraveling can be extreme.
If you want to be sure that the cut end of your line doesn’t start to come apart, just dip the end into a drop of white glue. You only need a tiny bit, and you need to be sure that it works into the individual threads and that it dries completely before you use the tie line.
