Hemp or Jute? Which should I choose?

Posted by Giotto Shelton on

Hemp:
  • Strong
  • Becomes very soft and smooth
  • Lasts forever
  • Tooth of the rope holds knots well
  • Heavy
  • Has a little stretch
  • Washable

Jute:
  • Moves quickly and smoothly when tying
  • No stretch
  • Unrivaled tooth for frictions and knots
  • Traditional rope of Japanese style bondage
  • Lasts about a year with weekly use
  • Becomes soft but always a bit scratchy
  • Half the strength of hemp
  • Half the weight of hemp
