Due to the success of the new construction of our Clara Premium jute rope, this method is being extended to other products. The advantage is that it ensures more even tension between the yarns. This means that it stays in balance, thus requiring less maintenance and giving longer life. It also eliminates the faults that can occur when making single yarn ropes.
New Asanawa or NewAsa, for short, feels and looks very similar to Osaka, although it is more the golden colour of recent Tossa batches. Finally! The feel of a loose laid single yarn rope without the short-life and high maintenance. No need for wet treatment.
Each of the three strands has 6 sub-plies, each of 6 yarns. It is 6.5mm diameter off the reel. So, it will settle down to a perfect 6mm after some use and stretching. It is so soft that it only needs dry treating.
