Asanawa 6mm is a very pale and light jute rope which is so soft and flexible that it doesn't need wet treating. It weights in at 17.4g per metre and comprises 7 yarns per ply with virtually no impurities, e.g. brown bark. Very even and consistently made. This is a seriously nice rope. With some use, it polishes up nicely and is very similar to much more expensive Japanese asanawa.
