Macrame Cord: Jute

Jute comes in many colors and is easy to work with

Jute is a great material to use for many Macrame projects.  It is not too costly and the thickness of the yarn will give you fast results.  You can buy jute in 2-ply sizes all the way up to 5-ply.  One thing to keep in mind when you’re using jute is that it is not colorfast.  This means that if you’re going to be using the jute in a project that is going to be subjected to electric or natural light for an extended period of time that it will fade.  You’ll find that the natural tone of jute, which is a sandy, light colored brown, will be great for natural projects when you’re going to be using objects such as shells, stones, natural beads, and other rustic items.

Jute is also available in dyed colors for those Macrame projects where you need color.  Or you can take your Macrame craft one step further by dying your own jute.

Hello,

I found your website and am interested in finding green jute to match a project done in the 1970′s. How do I determine what ply size I will need or if the green is close enough to the green in my project? Any help you can give to me will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dette
