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.
