Tossa Lite jute is a brand new product for us here at Eagle Leather. This rope is supplied to us by internationally recognised rope artist and educator Esinem, who has previously taught classes in store at Eagle Leather.

He says, "Tossa Lite is made from tossa jute, as used in Japan, which gives a stronger rope that ages beautifully and is much darker than White Jute. It comprises 3-plies made up of double yarn threads, instead of the single yarns more common in Japanese rope, to create an extremely light, yet durable rope. This is my lightest and most flexible rope due to the looser lay (twist). The double twisted yarns provide excellent resistance to 'high-stranding', i.e. going out of balance, common with loose laid ropes."

"If you are really fussy, just singe off the fuzzies, which are minimal, and treat it with Tsubaki Oil. However, it will break in and mature beautifully with just a bit of use."

"Why jute? It simply flies in your hands. Once you have used this jute, you won't go back to hemp, which feels leaden and lifeless by comparison. It is strong, light and holds knots very well. It has little stretch, unlike cotton and most synthetics. The softness of this loose laid rope ensures neat, unobtrusive knots and sharp, clean rope work. What's more, it is less likely to cause rope burn as natural fibre does not heat up so quickly when drawn across skin. Japan's top nawashi almost exclusively chose jute and I'd trust their judgment."
