Do only Demi-humans posses string because they keep stealing it from everyone else, or is twining thread more difficult than forging armaments?

Giant Golden Arrows....? Oh yes, we have an endless supply of those. But string? You ask too much.

There is a droprate of 3% I got 6 string in 200 demi humans. I farm them in the Limgrave Coastal Cave grace.

Having such a low drop rate and no way to buy these is just insane. The consumables its used for are burned through quickly so it discourages me from even using them at all because I'll quickly run out with no way to replenish other than farming for hours.

The drop chance on these is so ridiculously low and without a place to sell it.... well, roped bombs are a specialty weapon now.

Since no one has mentioned it, first room of Volcano Cave has a pack of 5 demi-humans closely bunched up. No idea if it's the best spot but it seems a lot better than Coastal Cave to me.

is there really no easy way to get this but farming undead? Seems weird considering how abundant other crafting materials are.

Not undead, demi humans.

After seeing many comments about how low the string drop rate was I wanted to see if it was worth farming at all for roped pots. All kills were done with 274 item discovery, 99 arcane and the talisman on a magic casting build with 15 vigor, lvl 160, all were easily done.

Medium-sized demi-humans in volcano cave, 5 are very close to the grace.
1000 kills, 132 string, 13.2% drop rate

You can kill 1000 of them in about an hour it's very quick and easy. Not an incredible drop rate, but very doable with minimal effort.

Farm 100 strings, do save backup and give them to your friend. Reload the save and ask your friend to give them back, rinse and repeat

This can be done with lots of items, even upgraded weapons. It's a bit of a cheat though :)

@Axelux - I dont like dupin - but this seems like a practical application of it. Unless it was like a 60% drop rate

People have been banned for duping

Don't spread misinformation. Duping via save-scumming is not bannable and has never led to any bans in previous souls games.

Unless you are duping a millions items at a time Fromsoftware won't really ban you for neither restoring a previous savefile nor dropping items to your friends. Fromsoftware encourages players to make backup saves, since save files can always corrupt
