I've seen the rope in a few different colors...I'm not sure about the yarn, it's not a sturdy material and I would hate for it to break..it will also wear down with time and unravel easier.

The poly rope at Home Depot or Lowe's is already braided and ready to go, you just add the clip and clamp..That's why I like using it..It's dependable and lasts..I usually get 30ft or so and cut into 3 pieces of equal length..I try to make my lead ropes around 9 or 10 feet a piece..

Only if you're planning on leading stuffed horses.

Yarn isn't a sturdy material.
