The stripes in sallies spiral the other way down here too :-)

So does this mean that ropes (all ropes?) are twisted that way too? 

Which would make them far more comfy for left-handed ringers.

At the cost of being less comfy to the vast majority of ringers?

(Perhaps we should use 'left-hand' rope on bells rung by left-hand ringers
and vice-versa?)
