How do I replace the sisal rope on a kitty scratching post?

I got KittyHeretical a giant kitty tree some while back. She absolutely adores it, and her sharp little kitty claws have cheerfully ripped through the sisal in about eight months. She still uses it, but there's little bits of sisal rope everywhere and some of the loops have broken off entirely. It's her favorite thing to scratch on, much to the delight of my carpet and furniture. How can I replace the rope so she can continue to go nuts on it?
I am not beyond spending a bit of money on this endeavor. This thing has withstood a VERY rambunctious kitten regularly going apeshit all over it, I don't want to have to replace it with something of potentially less sound construction.
(I'm unable to post pictures of KittyH due to a stalker being able to ID me from it, or I'd be photobombing you all already.)
