All our spooled rope is 6 mm and laid by hand. This is a 300+ foot spool of deGiotto Jute Rope. This finished jute is the same feel as our packaged product. It is polished and buttered with deGiotto Rope Butter before it is spooled up.
Jute is the rope for Japanese inspired kinbaku or shibari. It photographs like spun gold and moves like lightning.
All you have to do is cut to your desired length and finish the ends ( simple knot will do) and you're ready to tie. You save us the work of packaging and we save you some money.
We are very proud of the rope we are producing with our new process. It is our best rope ever.
Our natural jute spools are available with a choice of three tightnesses.
Due to issues arising from COVID-19, yarn shipments from India are delayed. For now, we can only offer our natural jute in our standard Loose lay. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.
Medium was our standard before May of 2019. This firm lay has lots of body, holds it shape, stays in balance better than looser lays and is more durable.
Loose is our new standard. We recommend this tightness. This loose (long) lay flattens more on the skin, is very flexible and compresses knots and frictions very well.
Very loose has the same properties as loose even more so. Its short break in time will soon have it feeling like that favorite rope in your bag that you always reach for first. It is reminiscent of the "traditional" shibari ropes of Japan. Caution, the looseness of the lay lends itself to high stranding unless care is taken. We recommend this rope only for more experienced and skilled riggers.
The tightness option is currently available only on spools of natural jute.
