Spooled Natural & Dyed Jute Rope 300+ feet Ready to use
All our spooled jute 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.
Dyed jute ropes are wound with our standard loose lay.
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.
These ropes come in a coil bound with a zip tie, as seen in the photo.
Our natural jute is available with a choice of three tightnesses.
*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.
Unlike some rope on the market, the individual yarns are died before the rope is made. The color goes all the way through to the core of the rope. We call it "color to the bone".
Black light rope now comes as a white base rope rather than natural.
Green has been discontinued.
Getting a spool was great as I could cut the rope to custom lengths as needed, and it was cheaper too! The quality of the rope is excellent. I obtained samples from several vendors including digiotto before settling on this rope. I compared this rope to a length of Nawaya rope I purchased from Japan, and this rope was very comparable in terms of quality, tightness, and lay, but half the price!
I’ve ordered both natural and dyed spools. It processes well and I have gotten excellent feedback from my customers.
So far I'm loving it!
I bought this as my first jute rope, but have a rope bunny where stand lengths don’t always work for ties, so I prefer to cut my own custom lengths. The rope is extremely high quality, and is perfect for shibari. I am very satisfied with my purchase, and will be ordering more once I have the funds!
Bought this to expand my stock of jute. It's lighter than hemp and takes rock solid knots and frictions. Will likely buy more.
