Default Safe string?

I've been researching strings because I want to attach kabob toys and tubes to the top of my cage since it's very tall. From what I've gathered twine isn't the best but hemp and sisal is. I can't find any sisal on Amazon that doesn't arrive weeks later, I've been looking at this brand called Hemptique and was wondering if this is safe. If not could anyone link safe strings from Amazon?
Thank you!

Edit: I've just seen sisal rope which is different to string and seems to be the rope that is on cat scratchers, is this safe?

I know jute is ok to use too. Are you in the UK? I got mine from wilkos

It needs to be natural and not coloured. I had a quick look on amazon uk , there are a few you could choose from - hope this helps.

Definitely no cotton or anything dyed. A lot of hardware store strings(even sisal or other fibers that should be safe on their own)can be treated, same with jewelry string.

A good example for those in the USA/Canada(not sure if they ship elsewhere):

I would definitely recommend that one, being organic and European-grown(and made) and 100% untreated(no harmful pesticide residues, no unsafe coatings or chemical treatments). It is more expensive initially as far as the price itself goes and you'd need to pay shipping, but it is a worthy investment that should last quite a while as it is ~154 feet of rope.

More feet but more of a narrow option if you'd prefer that:
